Focusing on the Nehru era which witnessed several crucial moments in the history of independent India, such as the drafting of the Indian Constitution, war and insurgency, and the adoption of the policy of non-alignment, this volume includes essays by P.C. Alexander, Karan Singh, Inder Malhotra, K. Natwar Singh, and M.V. Kamath, among others-individuals who have been witness to the making of history and who have, in their own way, contributed in shaping its course. From a recounting of the Nehru years by Karan Singh to personal narratives by M.V. Kamath and Subhash Kashyap to Nehru's foreign policy by K. Natwar Singh to international politic by Muchkund Dubey to Nehru's Kashmir Policy by Balraj Puri-the book includes their reminiscences, recollections, and interpretation of events based on personal knowledge. Written with depth and verve, each essay throws new light on the crucial eighteen years which witnessed the transition and transformation of a newly-independent nation.
