The Making and Unmaking of Prime Ministers of India presents a critical examination of the tenures of fourteen prime ministers of India, whose social, political and economic policies and programmes have shaped India since Independence. It also scrutinizes Narendra Modi's past record as chief minister of Gujarat for three consecutive terms and presents an agenda for his government at the Centre.The book traces the trajectory of India's evolution from the socialistic model of development espoused by Jawaharlal Nehru to the more pragmatic capitalistic model initiated by P V Narsimha Rao in the form of economic reforms and liberalization. It also details the domestic and foreign policies pursued by various prime ministers and their fallout.The book offers interesting insights into India's journey from the near-total domination of the Congress Party till the late 1970s, the unstable governments provided by Janata Party, the resounding return of Indira Gandhi, her assassination, Rajiv Gandhi's dramatic tenure as PM and his assassination to the subsequent emergence of Bharatiya Janata Party as a major political force. It looks at some epic milestones in India's diplomatic, political and military forays like the wars with Pakistan and China, the Emergency years when civil rights and elections were suspended for the first and only time in the country's modern history, the infamous Kandahar hijacking case, the Kargil incursions and many more. For anyone interested in the history of India since 1947, there is enough food for thought, a superb recap of events that have determined the destiny of our country.Printed Pages: 312.
