Biography & autobiography: historical

An eminent freedom fighter, politician, member of Parliament and journalist and publisher of the The National Herald and The Navjivan newspapers and above all, a crusader against corruption, Feroze Gandhi was a great man in all aspects. He soon became a prominent figure in his own right, criticising the government of his father-in-law Pt. Nehru, and beginning a fight against corruption. He continued challenging the government on a number of other issues, and emerged as a bold and honest parliamentarian, well-respected on both sides of the benches. He also initiated a number of nationalisation drives, starting with the Life Insurance Corporation.This biography of the great son of India, known as Feroze Gandhi is a tribute to his services to the nation and polity. This adventurous academic endeavour - perhaps one of the few, so far on the subject - is an accomplishment in its own right. This comprehensive book is an asset for all historians, political scientists, other scholars and researchers.
