The Only Fatherland is a detailed study into the advent of communism of India and the roles it has played in the Quit India Movement. Summary of the Book Arun Shourie writes about his opinions on communism in India. He questions whether communism has the answers to everything, and tries to portray their views on topics such as Indian Independence and the Quit India Movement. He discusses their response to the end of the communist bloc, and the insurrection in1949 when the communists claimed India was ripe for an armed revolution. He reveals the actions of the communists during the Quit India Movement, and the secret negotiations and understandings they struck with the British. He also follows up this treatise with an explanation of what the communists did to subvert Mahatma Gandhi’s movement and the reactions of the communists to the fall of USSR. This is an essential read for all history enthusiasts. About Arun Shourie Arun Shourie is an Indian journalist, writer and politician. A former economist with the World Bank, Shourie served as a consultant to the Planning Commission of India, editor of the Indian Express and The Times of India and a minister in the government of India.

Some of his other books are: Eminent Historians: Their Technology, Their Line, Their Fraud, A Secular Agenda: For Saving Our Country, for Welding it, and Missionaries in India.

Are ideologies a pair of binoculars that enable us to see far? Or are they a pair of blinkers that keep us from seeing even that which is at hand? How is it that communists; equipped as they are with the one great Theory that explains everything; fumble ever so often in seeing the obvious? How did the Theory lead them to declare the Second World War as an 'Imperialist War' one day; and a 'People's War' the next? How did it lead them to undertake to sabotage the Quit India Movement for the British? How did it lead them to trumpet the demand for Pakistan 'better than the Muslim League'? To declare in 1947 that India had not really become independent? To insist that Pandit Nehru was just "a running dog of imperialism"? To launch an insurrection in 1949 on the premise that India was ripe for an armed revolution? To fumble so much in their response to the end of the communist bloc? Arun Shourie; one of the most respected commentators on current affairs in India today; illustrates the malady by reconstructing what the communists did during the Quit India Movement. In the process he uncovers the secret negotiations they conducted and the secret understanding they struck with the British; the reports they submitted to the imperial rulers about the work they were doing to subvert the movement Mahatma Gandhi had launched. He concludes with a review of the reactions of Indian communists to the break-up of the Soviet empire; showing how their mental make-up and habits have not changed in the six decades since independence.
