Told in lucid and beautiful prose, the story of Indias wild ride since independence is a riveting one. Guha explores the dramatic protests and conflicts that have shaped modern India, but he writes also of the factors that have kept the country together.
From the Publisher:
Documents the dramatic conflicts that have shaped modern India while evaluating the factors that have helped maintain stability and democracy throughout the region, in a post-Partition history that offers insights into the lives and contributions of Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, and lesser-known citizens. 40,000 first printing.

Praise

"INDIA AFTER GANDHI is a work of immense sweep and scholarship, but its real merit lies in its lucidity, and in the liberal attitude of its author: this is not a hectoring history, this is a charming invitation to understand the making of a complex nation." - Sankarshan Thakur August 2007

'[A] lucid and engaging summary of independent India....The story told in INDIA AFTER GANDHI after Gandhi is not a revelation for South Asian readers, but it is certainly the first attempt by a historian to compress into a single book a story previously scattered in hundreds of books, newspapers, journals and other archival material." 11/19/2007
