Summary:
"The destiny of modern India has largely been shaped by the efforts of three charismatic leaders - Gokhale, Gandhi, and Nehru. This omnibus volume brings together the lives of these three giants that enable us to compare their personalities, approaches, and achievements. At a time when India is faced with the challenges of the twenty-first century, the lives of Gokhale, Gandhi, and Nehru have much to teach us." "Nanda, India's foremost historian of the freedom movement, examines the lives of the three leaders as he relates them to their eras. These, then, are both biographies and histories of critical times - relating personalities to periods and leaders to the societies they lived in." "These works will engage both the scholar and the general reader and will be of particular interest to students of modern history and politics, as also to policy-makers, analysts, and journalists."--BOOK JACKET.
