Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Indira Gandhi became the first female prime minister of India, serving in that position from 1966 to 1977 and then again from 1980 to 1984, when she was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards. Her life in politics, however, began at an early age, during India's quest for independence from British colonial rule. As a child, she experienced the imprisonment of her father and other family members for opposing British rule, and she met and consulted with Mohandas Gandhi and other political figures. When Indira's father, Jawaharlal Nehru, became India's first prime minister after the country won independence in 1947, Indira became her father's closest adviser. She was elected President of the National Congress Party in 1959 and was elected prime minister after her father's death. During her first period in office, Indira led the country into the nuclear age, oversaw a war with Pakistan, which led to the creation of Bangladesh, and became a leader of the Third World. In 1980, at 62 years of age, she was elected to a third term as prime minister. An intelligent, sometimes controversial person, Indira Gandi comes across in this well crafted biography as a complex leader beloved for her devotion to her country. 2001, Lerner, $25.26. Ages 9 to 12. Reviewer:Valerie O. Patterson
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-A well-researched biography of India's first female prime minister. Both her remarkable life, including her triumphs and mistakes, and the history of present-day India receive attention. Dommermuth-Costa presents Gandhi's life within the context of the lives of her father and grandfather, who fought for India's independence. The book traces the woman's turbulent childhood and adolescence as she witnessed family and friends imprisoned repeatedly as they struggled against British colonial rule. Their fight would soon become hers as she eventually succeeded her father, Jawaharlal Nehru. Several chapters focus on Gandhi's ascent from emissary for her father's fledgling government to her own election in 1966. The text gives substantial attention to India's conflicts with other nations, as well as to its own domestic problems, and the prime minister's responses to them. The final chapters deal with her loss of office after political unrest, her reelection in 1980, and finally, her assassination by her own bodyguards in 1984. Many black-and-white photos are included. A good source for information on the woman and her land.-Carol Fazioli, formerly at The Brearley School, New York City Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
