Amagisterial account of the pains, the struggles, the humiliations, and the glories of the world's largest and least likely democracy, Ramachandra Guha's India After Gandhi is a breathtaking chronicle of the brutal conflicts that have rocked a giant nation and the extraordinary factors that have held it together. An intricately researched and elegantly written epic history peopled with larger-than-life characters, it is the work of a major scholar at the peak of his abilities.

'Ramachandra Guha's wonderfully wide-ranging history of India since Independence combines readability with rich research, a clear structure with a marvellous feel for anecdote and quotation, and judicious anaysis with the lively impress of the author's own personality'
- Vikram Seth, author of a Suitable Boy

'Ramachandra Guha is a remarkable historian whose combination of acute judgement, lucid writing and unparalleled research has resulted in a superb account of the progress and vicissitudes of modern India'
- David Gilmour, author of Curzon: Imperial Statesman
