The Nehrus and the Gandhis

The Nehrus and the Gandhis

(1985)
An Indian Dynasty
A non fiction book by

 

"A fascinating and clear-cut account of an exotic world and family like no other."
Gore Vidal


The Nehrus are a dynasty without precedent in the modern world; nowhere else and at no other time in recent history has a single family wielded such enduring and pervasive power over the country - and the electorate - they serve. From Jawaharlal Nehru to his daughter, Indira Gandhi, and from there, via Sanjay and Rajiv to - most recently - Sonia, this remarkable family have consistently established both the parameters and rhetoric of India's political development. In the eighties, Tariq Ali made several trips to India, meeting a wide range of political and public figures, including Mrs Gandhi, and leaders of both the Congress and Opposition parties. The Nehrus and the Gandhis, first published in 1985, was the result. Now updated to include the most recent chapters in India's political history, it remains as relevant as ever, offering an intricate and revealing portrait of power, seen through the continued rise - and eyes - of one family.
