Glimpses of World History
Glimpses of World History
By Jawaharlal Nehru
Day, 1942, 993 pp

This remarkable book consists of letters written during one of Nehru's periods of imprisonment. Relying almost wholly on his memory, he gave his young daughter, to whom these letters were sent, a three-year course in world history. The work is interesting as an Oriental interpretation of man's progress.
