JP's writings clearly express his lifetime search for a fundamental, non-violent, socio-political revolution rooted in the Indian context. The extracts in the book has been chosen to provide a brief insight into his thinking on a variety of subjects. Besides revealing his reactions to events as they happened, the book proves that JP's stress on flaws in parlimentary democracy and the multi-party system are as relevent today as they were when he first expressed them. His views were based on the primacy he gave to ethics in politics and personal freedom. Political change has to be accompanied by social, economic and even spiritual advances to become an effective Total Revolution.
