Product Description

Dr Satvinder S. Juss, Phd (Cantab) is a Professor of Law at Kings College London, a practising Barrister in London, and a Master of the Bench of Gray's inn.

The continual tussles over Bhagat Singh's identity, even more amplified of late, are a testament to the heroic status the man continues to hold in the annals of the Indian freedom struggle. Despite him having addressed his views on religion, politics and activism, there are many willing to forge completely new narratives of his life, and many more willing to believe them.



A timely antidote, this meticulously researched biography is an expansive foray into the life of Bhagat Singh. The volume deliberates upon his family from before when he was born, examining along the way the role that various episodes, policies and people played in shaping the identity of a legendary revolutionary, while also delving into his opinions on important questions of the time. It shines a bright light on the oft-ignored personal influences that made Singh who he was, along with the issue of his contested identity in today's politics. This is the definitive Bhagat Singh biography of our times.

Bhagat Singh: A Life in Revolution is two things simultaneously: the comprehensive portrait of an intellectual and revolutionary, but on a larger scale, the exploration of the complex landscape - political, social, personal, familial, religious, ethnic, moral - that he inhabited and was inspired by. Drawing from official archives, popular media and journalistic sources, this definitive textby Sativinder S. Juss traces the short life of Bhagat Singh, which has long inspired revolutionaries of past and present, examining also the reasons for why this may be. Published seventy-five years after Partition, Bhagat Singh: A Life in Revolution is a fascinating and meticulously researched history of perhaps the only figure whose legacy is celebrated in both India and Pakistan, escaping the burden of the Radcliffe Line.
