  Despite the Constitution`s call for a uniform civil code the system of communityspecific personal laws remains the order of the day in India. The codified personal law applicable under this conventional regime to four different religious  communities, together having over 80% share in the country`s population, is inaccurately called `Hindu Law`. The book offers a critical study of this major component of India's family law from certain new angles. Statutory provisions and their judicial interpretations have been viewed and presented in it in a historical, constitutional and human rights perspective. Since this law, like all other personal laws, has to be applied along with and subject to a number of general statutes, their provisions have also been brought into discussion in all chapters. The book is an advancement over the author`s earlier work studies in Hindu Law last published in 1998 and registers all legislative developments and judicial verdicts of the new millennium.
