Nehru Book Controversy

A new controversy has erupted in India over a book penned by statesman Jawaharlal Nehru, Discovery of India, some sixty years ago. The BJP is upset at what they say is a poor portrayal of the 17th century warrior Shivaji. The BJP, you may recall, was also upset over John Layne’s book on the same subject a few months ago, which resulted in OUP withdrawing the book from the Indian market. (The Complete Review has very thorough coverage on that issue.)
