India After Gandhi (The History of the World's Largest Democracy) Price: Rs.245

Born against a background of privation and civil war, divided along lines of caste, class, language and religion, independent India emerged, somehow, as a united and democratic country. Ramachandra Guha's hugely acclaimed book tells the full story - the pain and the struggle, the humiliations and the glories - of the world's largest and least likely democracy.

While India is sometimes the most exasperating country in the world, it is also the most interesting. Ramachandra Guha writes compellingly of the myriad protests and conflicts that have peppered the history of free India. Moving between history and biography, the story of modern India is peopled with extraordinary characters. Guha gives fresh insights on the lives and public careers of those longserving Prime Ministers, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi. But the book also writes with feeling and sensitivity about lesser known (though not necessarily less important) Indians - peasants, tribals, women, workers and musicians.

Massively researched and elegantly written, India After Gandhi is a remarkable account of India's rebirth, and a work already hailed as a masterpiece of single volume history.

A tribute to the history of India post independence!

I expected much more than the knowledge i had gained about modern Indian history through Wikipedia (history and civics books 15 years back didnt definitely cover he last 6.5 decades in this much detail)... But, the way Ramchandra Guha has put across the relevant aspects of history that has gone behind the current concept of India is very exhilarating!

Brilliant book

Excellent book. Talks about aspects of India's history that are not taught in history books.

There are lot of things here that I did not know about.

I ordered it on the flipkart ebooks reader and it was seamless. :)

Good content but language of a school level

Content is good. However author tries to force in his opinions without much support from time to time.

Language is also inconsistent and gives a feel of reading a school level book.
