The book being an outcome of a national seminar for the first time twenty-five years ago, established theoretical foundations of building Ambedkarism as a philosophy. There are four sections containing 26 papers. Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer, A.M. Rajasekhariah, Sharad Patil, S.G. Kulkarni, S.K. Sarkar, K.N. Kadam and others; along with K.S. Chalam deliberated at the seminar around the theme of the book. This edition of the book contains new material that recorded the immensity and exuberance of Ambedkarism during the last twenty-five years since the first edition appeared.
