Description
Information
The definitive and first non-partisan biography of one of the most formidable political figures of the 20th century (voted Woman of the Millennium in a BBC poll, 2000).

Indira Gandhi's life, from her birth in 1917, through partition and up to her assassination in 1984, was dominated by the politics of her country. Always directly involved in India's turbulent 20th century history, once she accepted the mantle of power she became one of the world's most powerful and significant women.

This biography, the first to be written by a non-partisan, Western woman, focuses on Gandhi's role as a female leader of men in one of the most chauvinistic, complex and politicised cultures in the world.

Comprehensive, yet also personal, Katherine Frank's biography deals with power and how this often isolated woman handled it alongside her family and her emotional life. It is the definitive book on one of this century's most powerful and important women.
