MEDIA REVIEWS
"Stanley Wolpert's Nehru: A Tryst with Destiny is a magisterial work about one of the twentieth century's major historical figures. It is written with great style and it embodies many years of painstaking scholarship. It is a most welcome addition to the modern history of India by one of the leading
scholars of modern South Asia. Stanley Wolpert has done justice to Nehru and his legacy."--Vartan Gregorian, Professor of History and President, Brown University
"There have been biographies of Jawaharlal Nehru before. There will be more to come. This one will stand as the best, past and, I cannot doubt, future as well. Everyone interested in the larger history of the century just passed must turn to it. These are strong words, strongly meant."--John Kenneth
Gailbraith, Harvard University
"Stanley Wolpert, America's leading south Asian expert, has given us a compelling, brilliant portrait of Nehru that will be applauded not only by experts on India but an audience eager to understand the recent history of that extraordinary country. Wolpert's Nehru is biography at its best; an
engaging portrait of a towering modern figure who affected all our lives. This book will become the starting point for all future work on Nehru."--Robert Dallek, UCLA
