Description
It is a matter of some satisfaction that this book has survived and appeared after year even though I could not get an opportunity to revise it since long, of its several shortcomings I generally felt embarrassed when quite a few or other former students of law in different walks of life fondly introduced '• es to me by telling me that they read this book with benefit as law if. On every such occasion, besides admitting several shortcomings in the I always resolved to revise it at the earliest so as to at least remove from
it the patient errors. But somehow I could never succeed in creating conditions required  for the realization of my resolve. The conditions could not be created because I was also entertaining a grand design of legal and constitutional history of India which I have tried to outline in the introduction to the present edition. Conversion of such design into concrete shape demanded sustained research for a considerably long time. Unfortunately I did not get the opportunity for such a research in spite of my sincere desire and efforts in that direction. Therefore even this delayed revision has not gone that far as I would have liked it to go.  Primarily it removes the patent errors and updates information wherever appropriate. As the students are well satisfied with the information the book contains, it very well serves their purpose. I hope it will serve it better now than what it has been doing so far.
