What People are Saying About This

Amartya Sen

Subhas Chandra Bose was perhaps the most enigmatic of the great Indian leaders fighting for independence in the twentieth century. This wonderful book makes a major contribution to the understanding of the political, social and moral commitments of Netaji, the great leader, as he was called by his contemporaries.

Amartya Sen, author of The Idea of Justice

Dr. Tim Harper

This is a definitive biography of Subhas Chandra Bose, written by the person most qualified to do so. It is an epic tale, told in an epic manner.

Dr. Tim Harper, author of Forgotten Wars: Freedom and Revolution in Southeast Asia

Arjun Appadurai

This remarkable book places Subhas Chandra Bose fully in the context of Indian and world history. It should be read by everyone interested in the end of the British Empire.

Arjun Appadurai, New York University
