Chapters 1, 9, and 10 cover various aspects of the Indian National Army-the campaigns, speeches and broadcasts, the trial, and the mass upsurge. Chapters 2 and 3 deal with the freedom campaign both in India and the West. Chapters 4 to 7 document the repeated failures to bring about a consensus on forming a government at the centre with various political parties. Chapter 8 focuses on the popular movements - States Peoples' movements and the Workers-Peasants' movements. The last chapter highlights certain pronouncements of leaders, debates on ideas about the future of India, and the publications that happened to occur in 1945."--BOOK JACKET." ;
