This work focuses on a neglected aspect in Nehruvian studies and discusses the experiences of the Nehru family in prison during the national movement. The author charts out the significance of the prison experience in understanding the thoughts and ideas of one of the most prominent families which provided leadership during the Indian freedom struggle. The book explores the prison experience of Jawaharlal Nehru and his family, notably Motilal Nehru, Vijayalakshmi Pandit, Krishna Hutheesingh among others. The book argues that the prisons were not only a marker of participation in the national movement for the Nehrus, they also provided a place and time for them to give direction to the movement. It also is an intellectual biography of the members of the family and traces their collective and varied influences in the shaping of the national movement. In a sense, the book documents the ethos of an entire era during the colonial period.
