Speed of Light(c)

My mind keeps boggling around this question is speed of light really a constant or not?

i've read many books on relativity but i didin't find any satisfactory answers, here "satisfactory" means mathematical proof!i've read dover books on relativity and einstein's original abstract

the speed of light is constant, although light's speed varies depending on where it is. e.g. Light travels at the speed of light in a vacuum but if it travels through glass, it slows down as much as one-third of its usual speed. The speed of light is about 2 996 000 m/s but light's speed depends on where it is. try not to be confused. (Think of speed of light instead as the speed of radio)

Please do give a proof of physical although mathematical is prefered!
