About this title


Indian democracy and the office of prime minister have both undergone great changes since independence in 1947. But one thing has remained constant. While the successive prime ministers have brought varied outlooks and skills to the job, all have wielded immense power. Despite this, however, no wide-ranging, systematic study of this great office has been written. This book fills the gap by analyzing the changing office of prime minister. As a result, what might have been a dry institutional study shows India's prime ministers struggling to comprehend and manage powerful political and social cross-currents. It explores their achievements and weaknesses, and the limits of their power. It offers a unique window on nearly half a century of political change in the world's largest democracy.
