From Google Books: "A penetrating study of the man who led India through her long struggle to independence in 1947, and, as Prime Minister until his death in 1964, steered her through her formative years as one of the world's great nations. Judith Brown, a leading authority on Nehru, explores his many achievements. She examines his relations with both Britain and with his fellow countrymen, and shows us a man caught between two worlds - a sensitive visionary with no real love for the political life who died frustrated at his failure to lead India into more radical change. This is a moving account written for a wide readership, and is an excellent introduction to the society and politics of India as well as to its central character."
