"a compelling, brilliant portrait of Nehru that will be applauded not only by experts on India but an audience eager to understand the recent history of that extraordinary country. Wolpert's Nehru is biography at its best; an engaging portrait of a towering modern figure who affected all our lives. This book will become the starting point for all future work on Nehru." -- Robert Dallek, UCLAAbout the Author:
