About the Book : - The Commonwealth Games hold out many promises they will firmly establish Delhi's identity as a global city, promote sports among Indians, create job opportunities, increase tourism . . . But what is the reality behind these claims? Come October, when India hosts the Commonwealth Games 2010 in New Delhi, the country will unite in celebrating the biggest sports extravaganza in its history. The whole nation will share the emotions of sportspersons in their moments of triumph and failure during these twelve exciting days. The Games will impact on many different aspects of our lives, and the buzz has already begun. The book lays bare Delhi's level of preparedness for the Commonwealth Games 2010 by analyzing important indicators including the physical infrastructure, tourism, security arrangements, the creation of employment and the impact on the environment. Extensively researched, it provides readers with an interpretative and insightful account of the various aspects related to the Games from sports legacy to corporate sponsorship; from the socio-cultural impact of the Games to their effect on employment. The book also includes a survey of over 5,000 employers across the country on the long- and short-term impact that the Games will have on work opportunities in India.

"This book delineates the nature and evolution of the concept of the commonwealth in early modern England, from its late-medieval roots to its virtual disintegration against the vastly different background of the late eighteenth century. In part an outgrowth of the ideas explored in the author's publications upon mid-Tudor and late-eighteenth-century England, it rests also on many years of research into the Elizabethan, Stuart, and early-eighteenth-century eras. While full account is taken of authoritative secondary works, including recent scholarly controversies, the book's strength comes from the detailed illustration from original sources of its comparative analysis."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This book is a contribution to comparative constitutional law and deals with important changes in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the original members of the present Commonwealth of Nations. It is based on lectures delivered at the University of Cambridge. The first lecture discusses the development in recent years of the constitutional autonomy of Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and its effect on the constitutions of those countries and on the concept of the 'crown'. The second lecture is concerned with methods to entrench, constitutionally, individual and democratic rights. The final lecture contrasts judicial attitudes to the interpretation of the constitutions of Canada and Australia. The conclusion is reached that although the EEC is not a federation, there is a structural similarity between the distribution of governmental power within the Community and its members, and the federal issues that arise in Canada, Australia and other federations.
