The Man Who Remade India

A Biography of P.V. Narasimha Rao

Vinay Sitapati

Modern South Asia

  • The Economist named the Indian edition a "Book of the Year" in 2016
  • Authoritative biography of a world-changing figure that very few know about outside of India
  • Based on Narasimha Rao's personal papers, which have never been made public before, and over 100 interviews with leading figures in Indian politics and cultural life
  • Contradicts the established theory that the transformation of India in the 1990s was caused by external (IMF) pressure
