In 1938 Subhas Chandra Bose reached the peak of his political life, when he was elected President of the Indian National Congress. Leading the forces of anti-coloniaIism and socialism, he was re-elected in 1939, having defeated Gandhi's nominee in a bitterly contested election. However, in the face of vehement opposition from the right wing of the Congress and Gandhi, he resigned. This volume brings together Bose's letters, writings and speeches from January 1938 until just after his resignation in April 1939. It includes the famous Haripura Address of February 1938. Other pieces deal with socialism, national planning, science, Hindu–Muslim relations, the role of women, and European politics. Among the 120 letters here are sets of correspondence with Gandhi, Tagore, Jinnah and Nehru.
