A book rich in details and insight

November 29, 2013

That is what Rudrangshu Mukherjee calls Guha’s Gandhi before India in his Telegraph book review:

This is a book rich in detail and insight. The narrative is deftly crafted and nowhere does the extensive research cast its shadow on the telling of the story. Good history writing invariably braids narrative and analysis. It is to Guha’s credit that he has revived this form of history writing in India.

I have bought myself a copy of the book; however, I am yet to start reading it.
