1 Rajeev Bhargava, Michael Dusche, and Helmut Reifeld (eds)
Justice: Political, Social, Juridical
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936475 / 9780761936473; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book looks at concepts of justice from points of view of various religious and cultural traditions (Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Cosmopolitanism, Tribal Cultures) and different methodological perspectives (historical, theological, philosophical, sociological). One common thread in these essays is the reflection on ethics universally and reference to the basic values of the Indian constitution. People from different backgrounds were included in the dialogue process on justice that lead to this publication. This volume attempts to express the opinions of people whose voices were not very prominent in theoretical debates on justice and its practical implications. Their perspectives on justice are contrasted with mainstream conceptions of justice, whose representativeness for India today is thereby challenged. Both plain universalism and relativism lack a common point of reference to assess relevance and adequacy of a given conception of justice. Neither plain universalism nor relativism defined by traditional norms is sustainable. The contributors offer a concept of `internal universalism` as an alternative to plain universalism. Combining various forms and stages of `reflective equilibrium` as conceived by John Rawls, this framework provides us with the necessary reference point to assess the relevance and adequacy of conceptions of justice and engage in a comprehensive dialogue on questions of justice.

2 Rajeev Bhargava (ed.)
Politics and Ethics of the Indian Constitution
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195692551 / 9780195692556; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Much of the germinal work on the Indian Constitution has been done by legal experts and historians. The distinctiveness of this collection of essays is its focus on the Indian Constitution from the perspective of political theory. Contributors to this volume view the Constitution either as a political or as an ethical document, reflecting configurations of power and interests or articulating a moral vision. Critically analysing the various aspects of the Constitution, the essays discuss equality, freedom, citizenship, minority rights, democracy, rights, property and welfare. It also asks questions like: Does the Constitution recognize all moral rights possessed by citizens? Are these rights only against the state or also against fellow citizens? Is the section on duties consistent with the section on fundamental rights? Does the Constitution support liberty, equality and fraternity in equal measure? If so, how does it balance them? Is the Constitution a framework for balancing liberty against power? Does the Constitution embody one ethical perspective or several competing moral visions? How, if at all, are these visions reconciled? Together, the essays offer a balanced view on the potential, achievement, and limitations of the Indian Constitution. It emphasizes the need to examine whether a disjunction exists between constitutional ideals and political practice. An important objective of this work is to resuscitate political theory in India, to evolve a form of political theory that is suitable in the Indian context, and to simultaneously open up Western political theory as it exists today. 023797
