Authored by one of the leading historians of India, these three volumes provide an authoritative first-hand account of Jawaharlal Nehru and his times.
The first volume of Sarvepalli Gopal’s two-part biography of Jawaharlal Nehru describes Nehru’s political and personal development through 1947, when India was granted independence and Nehru took office as India’s Prime Minister.
