"This is not a life of Nehru - though the biographical details are clearly set out - but a study of Nehru as a figure of power. In it, Judith M. Brown (a leading authority on modern India,) explores a number of related themes." "This account will reward anyone - scholar, student and general reader alike - interested in the making of our modern world. It has been written expressly for non-specialists, and not the least of its rewards is the general introduction it provides to the society and politics of India in the early and middle years of the century."--BOOK JACKET." ;
