The book comprehensively covers the subject of Court Martial, expanding the concept of the decision-making process of court-martial, for the reasons contextually explained, to include not only the decisions of court-martial proper on various issues before it, but also the pre and the post- trial matters, including investigation of the reported offence and review of the trial proceedings. Some of the specific questions designed to cover the subject relate to highly debatable and sensitive issues, such as the desirability of extending the court-martial jurisdiction to all civilian offenders in terrorism-struck areas like J&K. Similarly, much controversial Service issues, like command influence, human right violations by armed forces personnel, advisibility of continuing with summary court-martial in the Army, the court-martial verdict being a foregone conclusion and the trial procedure mere formality, the requirement of providing for bail and plea bargaining in the court- martial procedure et al, have been included in the book.
