By Frank Moraes

An informative, repetitious, occasionally critical narrative of Prime Minister Nehru's life, including comment on his personal and political activities and containing numerous anecdotes and sketches of important Indian personalities. The author is editor of The Times of India, the only important Indian English-language newspaper that from time to time allows itself to question the basic assumptions of present Indian foreign policy.
