About the Book

Filling creditably a gap in the story of India’s transition from Raj to republic, in this provocative, sharp, and urgently needed biography, Narayani Basu resurrects from the margins a man of forbidding character with a near impenetrable mind; an uncelebrated stalwart whose contributions have languished behind the reputations of those with greater charm. Deftly and often very directly, Basu locates V.P. Menon in the midst of fascinating dynamics featuring race, power, constitutionalism, and personal animosities, making a long overdue contribution to our knowledge of the men and minds that shaped Indian independence and its democratic destiny.

MANU S. PILLAI

In his long and influential career, V.P. Menon was a prime mover in the most crucial manoeuvres leading to the partition, independence and the integration of India. This first full-length biography – thoroughly researched and lucidly written – restores him to his place in history.
