I am very pleased to welcome George H. Gadbois, Jr. to Law and Other Things. Professor Gadbois has been a distinguished scholar of Indian law and judicial behaviour for several decades. He obtained his Ph.D. from Duke University and is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Kentucky, USA. He is, perhaps, best known for his 1970 article on Indian judicial behaviour published in the Economic and Political Weekly. Earlier this year, Oxford published his long-awaited Judges of the Supreme Court of India: 1950-1989.
