Inhaltsangabe: The Nehrus is being revived as a Classic Reissue. This book has established itself as a standard biography of Motilal and Jawaharlal Nehru. It provides a gripping survey of seventy momentous years of Indian History between 1861 and 1931. This edition carries a new Preface where the author talks about how and why he embarked on writing this book. Father and son played very different parts in the national struggle; but so intertwined were their lives that they influenced each other, not least when they differed. Love of ones children is a natural and common enough emotion, but in the case of Motilal, it had a rare quality, which Gandhi, a deeply religious man, described as divine. It carries a section analyzing Jawaharlal Nehru's role in the national movement after 1931, his relationship with Gandhi, and his contribution as India's first Prime Minister until his death in 1964.
