9780195636840: Jawaharlal Nehru: Rebel and Statesman

Jawaharlal Nehru, adulated during his lifetime, has in recent years suffered ill-informed denigration. This book seeks to restore the balance by providing a well-rounded picture of Nehru, the man and statesman, by placing his career within the social milieu and political context of his times. It does so not through a chronological account of Nehru's life and ideas but by focusing on significant and illuminating aspects of them. A concluding overview brings together and analyses the complex strands of his multifaceted personality and career, the book as a whole thus providing a full and fascinating account of his life and times.
