Nehru: The Years of Power - Vincent Sheean

Gollancz, 1960, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Edges of DJ showing a little wear, with several small tears.

This is a wonderfully rich book, written not as a job, but out of a deep interest and affection for its subject. The author knows and loves India, and for him Nehru is India. But this is more than a book about Nehru it explores all the major issues and major developments in present-day India. The book ends with a detailed account of Nehru the man, touching upon such matters as his vegetarianism, his daily exercises, the pattern of his day, his office, his home life; and gives a fascinating assessment of his personality.
