About The Book

On 12 June 1975, for the first time in independent India's history, the election ofa prime minister was declared void by a high court judgment. While thewatershed case, Indira Gandhi vs Raj Narain, proved the strength of India'sdemocratic institutions, it also acted as the catalyst for the imposition of theEmergency. Based on detailed notes of the court proceedings, The Case ThatShook India is both a legal and a historical document of a case that decisivelyshaped India's political destiny.

The author, advocate Prashant Bhushan, sets out to reveal the goings-on insidethe courtroom as well as the manoeuvrings outside it, including threats, bribesand deceit. Providing a blow-by-blow account, he vividly recreates courtroomscenes, where the arguments are by turns scathing, colourful and downrightshocking. As the case unfolds, we see how the ruling government can misuselegislative power, government resources and political funding. The book alsoincludes the Supreme Court proceedings, which went unreported in the mediadue to censorship and throw light on the constitutional amendments that wereenacted.

In Bhushan's forceful and gripping narrative, the experience is of having a frontrowseat to watch one of the most important cases in India's legal history playout before one's eyes.
