The Peacemakers/India and the Quest for One World has generated substantial debate since it was first published in early 2012. For some, the book has established that Nehru was an idealist of the highest order. Critics who define themselves as realists have subsequently led an anti-Nehruvian charge, castigating the prime minister for his naïveté.1 Broadly speaking, and each in different contexts and with different purpose, such realists have looked disapprovingly at idealism in politics, seeing it largely as fantastical, pie-in-the-sky moralism predestined to failure.
