Language is no longer perceived as a threat to the national unity of India. But the language controversies that accompanied the first years of Indian Independence had pushed the country to the brink of instability. This book examines Nehru's role in the Indian language crisis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`King relates to Nehru's involvement in ... events down to the partitioning of Bombay in a vivid, enlightening way' Times Literary Supplement
`King argues his case with vigour and sophistication. King also offers a linguist's reading of Nehru's general thinking, embodied in major essays and writings ... this book is an excellent means of understanding how far he succeeded in his time in finding workable and productive solutions.' David Taylor, Asian Affairs
`This is a well-written book about a fascinating topic.' Selma K Sonntag, Commonwealth and Comparative Politics, Vol.38, No.2.
`King clearly admires Nehru immensley ... This admiration gives a refreshing quality to the book. In an age fraught with mass cynicism of politics in advanced liberal democracies and ethnic fratricide in many other parts of the world, King shows us that it is still possible to have a political hero.' Selma K Sonntag, Commonwealth and Comparative Studies, Vol.38, No.2.
