This outstanding biography traces Nehru s political and psychological development, exploring the complexities of his character. It is perceptive and revealing about Nehru s relationship with Gandhi, the influences on him of his father and his education at Harrow and Cambridge, and of Western and Indian culture. First published in 1959, this well-researched book draws from Nehru s own writings and speeches and much material not readily available to assess Nehru as a leader and his place in history. Applying the technique of biography to shed light on political events, ideas and movements, this book uses at the same time the Indian struggle for independence as the background for a study of Nehru the man and the statesman. It will appeal to all interested in biographies and in the Indian freedom movement. Printed Pages: 698 with 32 halftones and 3 maps.
