Description

Born against a background of privation and civil war, divided along lines of caste, class, language and religion, independent India emerged, somehow, as a united and democratic country. This remarkable book tells the full story-the pain and the struggle, the humiliation and the glories- of the world's largest and least likely democracy.

While India is sometimes the most exasperating country in the world, it is also the most interesting, Ramachandra Guha writes compellingly of the myriad protests and conflicts that have peppered the history of free India. But he writes also of the factors and processes that have kept the country together ( and kept it democratic),defying numerous prohets of doom who believes that its poverty and heterogeneity would force India to break up or come under autocratic rule. Once, the Western world looked upon India with a mixture of pity and contempt; now, it looks upon India with fear and admiration.

Moving between history and biography, the story of modern India is peoples with extraordinary characters. Guha gives fresh insights on the lives and public careers of those longserving Prime Ministers, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi. There are vivid sketches of the major provincial leaders whose province was a large as a European country: the Kashmiri rebel-turned-ruler Sheikh Abdullah; the Tamil film actor-turned-politician M.G.Ramachandran; the Naga secessionist leader Angami Zapu Phizo; the socialist activist Jayaprakash Narayan. But the author also writes with feeling ans sensitivity about lesser known (though not necessarily less important) Indians-peasants, tribals, women, workers and musicians.

Massively researched and elegantly written, India After Gandhi is a magisterial account of Indias rebirth, and the work of a major scholar at the height of his powers.

This is the updated edition of the book. Book is huge, so consider getting the hardcover version. Paperback feels fine though. It feels even light-weight. I haven't read it yet. I am impressed by the way infibeam/seller packed it. It was wrapped very securely in layers of bubble-wrap.

great book.... Rating of 5 out of 5 Rating of 5 out of 5 Rating of 5 out of 5 Rating of 5 out of 5 Rating of 5 out of 5

i have got this book within a week of placing the order. the packaging was good and compact. the book is excellent and lucid in explanation and even a layman,one who is not familiar with the modern dynamics of Indian history, can comprehend it easily. the writer has tried to present the facts and possible implications accurately rather than imposing his ideas upon the readers. a great joy to read !!!!!
