Nehru: The Years of Power

By Vincent Sheean

Random House, 1960. Hardcover. Good/Good. This is an ex-library book with all the stamps and markings of a library book. Hard cover in good condition. Text block clean and tight. Dust jacket in good condition, has a mylar cover which is torn at back top. Stated First Printing. ///// From the book, ""India's position in the cold war was reached amid excruciatingly difficult domestic problems--the shift from the status of a colony to that of an independent modern nation; the pressure of the Communists; the partition of India and Parkistan, with its consequent rioting and bloodshed; the harrowing problem of Kashmir and the Red take-over of Tibet. Much of this Mr. Sheean saw in his long visits to India and, because he knew Mr. Nehru and the men who were forging the new nation, he was privy to many policies and events of world-wide importance.""
