The book traces the complex character of the political growth of Haryana, with its various caste and community interests working at cross-purposes, determining the crooked course that makes and mars the fortunes of contending individuals. For general readers as well as for special researchers of Haryana politics, Dr. Dahiya's book will remain indispensable for a long time to come.
