Robert D. King, Professor of Linguistics and Asian Studies, Rapoport Professor of Liberal Arts, University of Texas at Austin.Review:
`King relates to Nehru's involvement in ... events down to the partitioning of Bombay in a vivid, enlightening way'
Times Literary Supplement
`King argues his case with vigour and sophistication. King also offers a linguist's reading of Nehru's general thinking, embodied in major essays and writings ... this book is an excellent means of understanding how far he succeeded in his time in finding workable and productive solutions.'
David Taylor, Asian Affairs
