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."
'[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."
