9780143029670: In the Name of Democracy: JP Movement and the Emergency

When Jayaprakash Narayan, the leader of the JP movement in north India, pressed for the resignation of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, it prompted her to impose internal Emergency. In this fascinating account, Bipan Chandra traces the events that led up to this moment and makes some startling revelations. He finds that there was a real danger of the JP movement turning fascist, given the fuzzy ideology of Total Revolution, its confused leadership and dependence on the RSS for its organization. At the same time, despite the authoritarianism inherent in the Emergency, particularly with the rising power of Sanjay Gandhi and his Youth Congress brigade, Indira Gandhi did end it and call for elections. Finely argued, incisive and original, this book offers significant insight into those turbulent years and joins the ever-relevant debate on the acceptable limits of popular protest in a democracy.

Product Description:

The Emergency of 1975-77 was a dark chapter of India's democracy. Leading up to it was the JP movement, named after its leader Jayaprakash Narayan, which paralysed much of northern India and directly challenged Prime Minister Indira Gandhi at the centre.

Review:

Books highlight the fight of a great leader who skiped PM post on several instances yet made its life's mission to challange an empire run by Indra Gandhi and her chamchas. Highlights the era which by and large affected future politics of India. --By Nishant Bangar on 26 February 2017

Book Description Penguin Books India Pvt Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, In the Name of Democracy: JP Movement and the Emergency, Bipan Chandra, Though a few books exist on the emergency per se, this is the first attempt to critically analyse it in tandem with thw JP movement. Mapping the course of events in these years 1973-1977, Bipan Chandra finds that while both Jayaprakash Narayan and Indira Gandhi ostensibly sought to protect democracy, the manner in which their political efforts were played out went against the grain of it, adversely influencing and posing a dilemme for post 19977 politics in India.
