Indira free pdf A non-partisan biography of one of the most formidable political figures of the twentieth century. 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 twentieth century history, once she accepted the mantle of power, she became one of the world's most powerful and significant women. Frank's biography deals with power and how this often isolated woman handled it, alongside her family and her emotional life.
