The federal structure in India is unique in the sense that it operates more on vertical (centre-state) plane than on horizontal (state-state) plane making it a centralized federative polity. The book attempts to introduce and analyse the federal structure as enunciated in Indian Constitution from the theoretical as well as practical perspectives and how it has been able to put in place and evolve mechanism to meet the various and varied aspirations of different regions, communities, and classes. Written in largely non-technical language, the major strength, of the book is that, besides the historical perspective, it discusses critical issues like constitutional division of powers, Union-State administrative relations. etc., and how they have provided positive framework for the changing patterns of successful parliamentary democracy in a multi-cultural India beset with problems like overpopulation, illiteracy, and economic backwardness.
