I am amazed at the industry which has gone into the preparation of this excellent and exhaustive exposition on the evolution of fundamental rights in Sri Lanka. I must state that I am overwhelmed by the erudition and the scholarship which has gone into the writing of this masterly treatise. To be frank, I have learnt a considerable amount of comparative constitutional law, as the book has heavily drawn on various Conventions and decisions of the courts from many other jurisdictions. I personally feel that this book would be of considerable help to lawyers, not merely in Sri Lanka but in India as well.

The courts in our respective countries are involved in the great task of upholding the 'sacred rights' enshrined in our Constitutions. A great contribution has been made to the understanding and development of these rights by Dr Jayampathy Wickramaratne.
