About the Author:-

Ram Jethmalani, respected and feared for his candor in matters political, remains an enigma to many. As a public figure—a politician always in demand, the highest-rated criminal lawyer in the country, and an international legal authority—he is held in high esteem. In over fifty years of being an active politician, he has never allowed political allegiance to compromise his values.


About the book:-

This is a collection of essays by the author on some of the major topics concerning India-its politics and its neighbors. By the very nature of his long life and the expanse of history that he has closely witnessed, we are given a wider perspective on the situations. Time has proven many viewpoints redundant but it does not negate the value of debate and discussion.

This volume is a compilation of the author’s insights into the state of Indian politics today, expressed with clarity and frankness, laying bare the cover-ups and deception that have come to plague India’s body politic. Jethmalani’s arguments are incisive, often explosive, but above all, they cannot be set aside. Some of the burning issues discussed in this book are black money, governance, corruption, Kashmir, China and Pakistan, fundamentalism and the rise of terror. Maverick Unchanged, Unrepentant is a searing critique of the disease inherent in government.
