The discovery of India

£10.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

In "The Discovery of India", Nehru sets out on a voyage of self-discovery and offers a penetrating analysis of his own motherland. The book, first published in 1946, prompted Albert Einstein to write to Nehru: "I have read with extreme interest your marvellous book...It gives an understanding of the glorious intellectual and spiritual tradition of your great country."
This paperback copy was published on the centenary of Nehru's birth by Oxford India. Bound in white card with black/white photograph of Jawaharlal Nehru on green background, patterned with the initials 'JN'. Fresh copy, edges of first and last few pages have faded, otherwise very good.
