Freedom Democracy and Revolution: Explorations in JP's Thought

Sachchidananda (ed.) (Author) Nil Ratan (Editor)
Synopsis Jayaprakash Narayan was a legendry figure of our time. His life is a remarkable story of an individual dedicated to the service of nation with unparalled courage and conviction. A revolutionary at heart, he acquired a high stature in public life without advocate of Socialism and Sarvodaya and a firm believer in democracy. His call for total revolution, the movement to save democracy against authoritarianism, ushered a new era in Indian politics. A prominent political thinker and social reformer, he added a new dimension to Indian polity and society. This volume is a tribute to his memory. The papers focus on some of the important areas of JP’s thought and action such as his concern for democracy and freedom, rural development, Panchayati Raj, land reforms as well as his relevance to the problems of the present India. It embodies the contributions of many scholars, which were presented at a seminar held at the A.N. Sinha Institute of Social Studies of which J.P. was the founder chairman for first ten years.
