Reading Upendra Baxi as a guide to the study Indian constitutionalism: a comment

  • Matthew John


This short comment is an attempt to zero in on the prodigious work of Professor Upendra Baxi, to locate him as a scholar of the material and contextual constitution. Having done so, it attempts to illustrate the power of the material constitution through my work and interests in Indian constitutional practice. Broadly, it plots a rough and idiosyncratic outline of the imprint of Baxi’s work on the study of Indian constitutionalism.
