This book is a journey of a provision of law from its cradle to its grave, through a contested birth, lawyerly mechanisms in its early years, endemic political skullduggery, episodic displays of judicial statesmanship and a sudden and swift demise. It demystifies the complex legal provisions for a general reader.

It is an attempt to fill the void of sparse literature that exists on one of the most complex provisions of the Constitution of India, through a detailed biography of Article 370.

Navi Books is a new initiative by Vidhi offering a unique digital reading experience that demystifies books on complex subjects for the general reader.
