Description

Sarvepalli Gopal’s biography of Jawaharlal Nehru is now generally recognized as the standard work on one of the key personalities of the twentieth century. Written from first hand knowledge of Nehru-whom Gopal served for ten years in the Ministry of External Affairs-and with the advantage of unrestricted access to Nehru’s papers, the volumes provided more than an account of a personality and branched out into a definitive study of both the man and the age. This edition makes available the essence of that study in a compact form.

REVIEWS

Professor Gopal’s judgment on public affairs is always balanced, his scholarship is impeccable.
-Asian Affairs

Nehru’s India and his world vision in the company of S Gopal is at once a nostalgic, poignant and intellectual experience.
-Hindustan Times

For an accounts of Nehru’s intellectual development one has to refer to S Gopal’s biography.
-Pankaj Mishra, Outlook

The picture that S Gopal paints of Nehru, a personality that is warm yet aristocratic, dreaming and demoniacally active, honest but tolerant…would remain definitive for a long time to come.
-Amalesh Tripathy, Business Standard
