In August 1947, India achieved independence from British colonial rule. Now the world's largest democracy, & second largest country after China, India is growing daily in importance for global politics & economics. And yet for almost all 50 years of its independence, it has been ruled by one family -- a dynasty of Nehrus & Gandhis. Based on diaries, letters, contemporary journalistic accounts, new research & exclusive interviews with politicians, business leaders, family members & colleagues of the two families, this book traces the rise of the family from 1857 through India's independence, & on through the ill-fated reigns of Indira & Rajiv Gandhi. Illustrated.
