Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A number of books have been written about India post-1947, but nothing quite equals Mr Guha's India After Gandhi. And that is because the author takes a very objective view of what happened in the nation in the period post the death of the Mahatma - he makes no excuses for anyone (although his affection for Nehru is evident) and pulls no punches. But most of all, it is his narration that makes the book the classic it is - there is wonderful flow here, with loads of trivia intermingled with serious discussions, and more than the odd glimpse of ironical humour. Do not get intimidated by its size - this is a book that you will finish within a few days of starting it. Yes, it is THAT good. If there is one book that you must read on modern India, it is this.

Whole lot of interesting facts summarized in this book. A tribute to Indian democracy capturing the pain and the struggle, the humiliations and the glories.

Good compilation by Ramachandra Guha. Writing style is simple and yet attractive. Gives a broad perspective to understand the present India. This book talks about the events from 1947 to 1985 in detail, but post 1985 history is not discussed in the same manner. It gives only a vague idea about the political events from 1992 to 2005, and post liberalisation economics.
Simply, we can call the book as 'India, After Gandhi, Before Rajiv'. However, given the extent it discusses about Nehruvian era and Indira Gandhi's time, we can say that Guha has done an extensive research. Respect...
This book really is a treasure...

It is a must read for anyone who wants to have a true and unbiased view of India's recent past and who wants to know why India acted the way it did. Not just from a political perspective, this masterpiece covers all aspects of an Indian life.

India After Gandhi is every Indian's delight and to say the least, pride. Arming the post independence history of India in 775 pages has been handsomely done by Guha. Every chapter, every page and every sentence is a saga of Indian subcontinent. Guha succeeds in providing unbiased perspective of post independence Indian history upto 4th chapter after which he shares his own perspectives too. It is a must read for all Indians to know their country better. This book has changed my perspective and the way I used to look at and think about my country. IAG is an amazingly wonderful work of Guha.

Book:
The book is a must have for any enthusiast who wants to know India's post independence history which is unfortunately known by less people. This book is may be the only one which has an account of all the important events which shaped India's future.
The book is mainly elaborated till 1991 and post that it is a summary of the events as witnessed by Mr. Guha himself.
I would have personally liked that area to be more detailed.
Overall the book is a must read.

Amazon:
The book was delivered on time and was in excellent condition.

The book is of good quality and amazon delivered it on the third day. I am Currently reading this book and this review is based on the first 50 pages or so. If you love India the way it is and if you love history, do not wait for a second but jump and grab this. Don't get me wrong, but I am skeptic of Indian authors when it comes to non-fiction but this one proved me wrong. I was having goosebumps after the prologue. When I started the book, I knew for sure that I was dealing with something different. Hope to comeback and update this review once I finish the book.
