DESCRIPTION

Gives an understanding of the glorious intellectual and spiritual tradition of (a) great country.' Albert Einstein

Written over five months when Jawaharlal Nehru was imprisoned in the Ahmadnagar Fort, The Discovery of India has acquired the status of a classic since it was first published in 1946.
 

In this work of prodigious scope and scholarship, one of the greatest figures of Indian history unfolds the panorama of the country's rich and complex past, from prehistory to the last years of British colonial rule. Analysing texts like the Vedas and the Arthashastra, and personalities like the Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru brings alive an ancient culture that has seen the flowering of the world's great traditions of philosophy, science and art, and almost all its major religions.
 

Nehru's brilliant intellect, deep humanity and lucid style make The Discovery of India essential reading for anyone interested in India, both its past and its present.

In 1912, Nehru returned home to play a central role in India s struggle for freedom from British colonial rule, and then, as prime minister of independent India for seventeen years, went on to shape the nation s future as a modern, secular and democratic state.
 

He died in office, on 27 May 1964. Visionary and idealist, scholar and statesman of international stature, Nehru was also an outstanding writer. His three most renowned books An Autobiography, Glimpses of World History and The Discovery of India have acquired the status of classics, and are all published by Penguin.
