نهرو در مورد تاريخ چنين بيان مي كند كه فكر كردن در مورد گذشته دنيا و سرگذشت مردان و زنان بزرگ و آن چه در دنياي گذشته روي داده است بسيار جذاب و خواندني است.

خواندن تاريخ بسيار خوب است اما كمك كردن براي به وجود آمدن تاريخ از آن هم جذابتر و جالبتر است و مي دانيم كه اكنون در كشور ما (هندوستان) تاريخ ساخته مي شود. هند گذشته بسيار طولاني دارد و آغاز آن در تيرگي هاي روزگاران قديم

I really debated with myself on whether to give this 5 stars. Which is strange, considering I never touch non fiction. This huge book was a birthday gift from my mom many years back, and all this time it lay in the back of some shelf, collecting dust and turning yellow because I simply could not gather enough interest to pick it up.


I could not be any happier to be proven wrong when I did get around to reading this though. It was incredible to know anyway, that this around 1000 page beast is simp

Wonderful book. "Glimpses" is a bit of an understatement though. It's quite exhaustive and very beautifully explained. There is hardly a page of this enormous book that is dull. The essays bring out Nehru's interest and understanding of human history, culture, world affairs and social movements. It brings out his idealism, his love of knowledge, of freedom, of democracy and of lifting the masses out of misery. One can see his socialist leanings and despise of capitalism rising out of the bad eco ...more

پایان جلد اول;تابستان 95
اولین کتاب تاریخیه که می خونم،اونم تاریخ به این گستردگی:جهان.
تاحدود زیادی طبق اسم کتاب،صرفا "نگاهی" به تاریخ داشته و خیلی وارد جزییات نشده.ولی در رابطه با هند که وطن نویسنده است بیشتر پرداخته و حتی تحلیل هم شده که بعضی وقت ها خسته کننده می شد.
چون مخاطب نامه ها،دختر نوجوان نویسنده است،خود نویسنده تلاش کرده که خیلی وارد اسم ها و جزییات نشه و نثر رواییش هم ساده و روان باشه.
در کل خوب بود،راضی بودم:)
تا اینجا 4 ستاره

Coming to recall my remote acquaintance many years ago with its fame in a Thai article on this outstanding “Glimpses of World History” written in captivity due to his struggle for freedom from British colonial rule, I have since longed to read it in the original. Early in March last year, I was delighted to see it on display at the DASA BookCafe in Bangkok, that’s the end of my longish search in various bookstores. Classified as ‘Non-fiction/History’ at the back cover, the book itself with its t ...more

A couple of years ago, my personal interest in Current Affairs was blooming out of my appreciation and love for beauty that exists. And the more I ended up trying to understand what it all is, and how, I also ended up with a 'why'. This paved the way for me to know and understand what had happened before, to lead to the now. How the forces of history shaped and moulded the present. To pursue that, this was the book I chose, to understand the world history, before exposing myself to any other spe ...more

این کتاب نوشته جواهرلعل نهرو است که اسمش هم آدم را مسحور میکند. کتاب، مجموعه نامههای پدری است که از زندان برای دخترش مینویسد و آنچه را بر زمین و زمان گذشته، باز میگوید. البته واقعا «نگاهی به تاریخ جهان» است و آدم کمی ناراحت میشود از اینکه تندتند از روی تاریخ عبور میکند و تلختر اینکه کتاب، پیش از جنگ جهانی دوم به پایان میرسد. از طرف دیگر، این خوبی را دارد که تاریخ تمدن غرب نیست و یک شرقی مصیبت کشیده از استعمار آن را نوشته است. جالب است بدانید نویسنده این نامهها چند سال بعد خلاصی از زندان، نخستوزی ...more

هر جند که دیدگاههای این کتاب سوسیالیستی است ولی فکر کنم که واقعاٌ میتوان بی طرفی را در خیلی از موارد در آن دید. حداقل برای من در آن سالهای نوجوانی که به دنبال جوابهای قانع کننده درباره ی تاریخ جهان بودم که خیلی پاسخ گو بود.بیش تر از خیلی از کتابهای بی سر و ته چپ نماهای آن دوران از آن توانستم تاریخ را بیاموزم

دوره ی سه جلدی این کتاب را زمانی که دبیرستان بودم به عنوان هدیه گرفتم و سیر تاریخی جذابی بود و به نظرم میتوان به عنوان کتاب مرجعی خوب در نظر گرفت.تنها مورد و اشکال در کنار ترجمه ی بسیار عالی این کتاب را میتوان ستایش بیش از حد از تاریخ و فرهنگ هند در نوشته های نهرو دانست که البته شاید در کشور هند و شخصیت خاص نهرو خیلی هم خوب باشد.

حتى وصل للقرون الثلاثة الأخيرة وبالتحديد, الثورة الفرنسية, النهضة الصناعية في اوروبا

One of my all time favourites! You can't read this book and not be in awe of the man! His intellect, his education and his language ... I thought the review in the back of the book summed it up very well.

"Indian children should study "glimpses" .... they would learn better history and better English".

I am not a fan of Nehruvian socialism as it is defined and understood today...and the book convinces me that Nehru would not like the fact that his followers are dogmatic about his economic views.

Picked up this one randomly.. may be it was the sheer volume or the glorifying title that attracted me to it. But watever it was thankful, that i got it and read it.

Nehru's brilliant intellect, deep humanity and lucid style make The Discovery of India essential reading for anyone interested in India, both its past and its present. and more importantly the way it sees the history of the world.. the view may sound biased to some..

قيمة هذا الكتاب ليس في مادته التاريخية بل في دروسه وعبره ومايمكن أن يستفاد منه لحاضرنا ومستقبلنا، وأجمل مافيه استعراضه لمجمل الثورات التي حدثت في تاريخ العالم من الثورة الفرنسية إلى الإمريكية ثم الروسية والإسبانية وغيرها وعندما نعرف وضع الهند آنذاك نتفهم هذه النزعة الثورية في هذا الكتاب ضد الظلم والاستبداد.

In 1930, a man who would later become the first prime minister of India was thrown in jail for a period of two years. There, removed from his family and regretful that he was forcibly absent from his daughter Indira's life, Jawaharlal Nehru labored to impart what wisdom he could through a series of letters. Beginning in October 1930 and ending in August 1933, the letters -- written in a loving and erudite pen -- cover the whole of the human story, from prehistory 'til the "present day" of 1938. ...more

One of the best book i have ever read. You will be astonished by the vastness and depth of Jawaharlal nehrus knowledge. He wrote these letters with historical references without any reference, from his notes and memory. The great values kept by Nehru can be seen throughout this book. This book created in me a interest to study about world history. History which used to be a boring subject in school with dates suddenly started becoming too interesting. A must read book for all.

Before this I have read only one book of world history and that was world civilization by E.M. Burns. That book mostly focused on the culture of Europe and its war and its consequence and about its civilization. In that book there very little space was for the civilization of China, Japan or India and even of Russia. But this was really a good one having detailed history of China. The purpose of the book was to make Indira Gandhi aware of the history of the world and I think it might have been f ...more

You ever wondered Nehru is called an internationalist or an idealist or why he was called to broker peace between Korean nations or the chosen one by mahatma or the founding father of India or the beloved chahchaji, you will learn all the reasons behind it by reading this book which shows the grip of Nehru over world history , where both the history of the world and his character unravels. Maybe world history had more grip over him than the other way around

I read this book because one of my best teachers recommended it to me. I must say I enjoyed this book though I conveniently picked other books and procrastinated it at times. The reason was the book's format was not very pleasing to the eye.

Nehru does intend to take you through the beginning of time to the then current political scenario of the world. He does it very briefly and ofcourse leaps from one time to another, one field to another, but by the end gives you a proper panoramic view of th

A commendable effort by J.L. Nehru in compiling these series of 198 letters to give his teenage daughter a glimpse of world history covering almost 4000 years from the dusty ages of Mohenjodaro to the brutal times of Gandhi.

If you are actually a novice read to world history and are clueless on where to start from, this is exactly where you should be. As you start reading this colossus of a work by Nehru, you are going to be amazed by the breadth of his knowledge and vision; the amount of reading and the world experience that could have possibly led to writing such letters to his daughter during his prison days. Even though he gives us his perspective on a few of those events, however ancient they may seem to be, Gl ...more

First prime minister of independent India (1947 – 64). Son of the independence advocate Motilal Nehru (1861 – 1931), Nehru was educated at home and in Britain and became a lawyer in 1912. More interested in politics than law, he was impressed by Mohandas K. Gandhi's approach to Indian independence. His close association with the Indian National Congress began in 1919; in 1929 he became its preside ...more

“আমাদের এই যুগটাই ভিন্ন জাতের; এটা হচ্ছে মোহভঙ্গের যুগ, সন্দেহ সংশয় আর প্রশ্নজিজ্ঞাসার যুগ। প্রাচীন কালের যে-সব মতামত আর রীতিনীতি ছিল তার অনেকগুলোই এখন আর আমরা মেনে নিতে পারছিনা, তাদের উপরে আর আমাদের বিশ্বাস নেই- এশিয়াতে ইউরোপে আমেরিকাতে সর্বত্রই। অতএব এখন আমরা সন্ধানে ফিরছি নূতন পথের, সত্যের নূতনতর রূপের, আমাদের এই পরিবেশের সঙ্গে যে রূপটির সামঞ্জস্য অধিকতর স্পষ্ট হবে। পরস্পরকে ক্রমাগত প্রশ্ন করছি আমরা, করছি তর্ক বিতর্ক আর ঝগড়া, খাড়া করছি অসংখ্যরকমের 'বাদ' আর দর্শন। সক্রেটিসের যুগের মত আমরাও বাস করছি একটি জিজ্ঞাসার যুগে; কিন্তু সে জিজ্ঞাসার ক্ষেত্র শুধু এথেন্সের মত একটি ক্ষুদ্র নগরীর মধ্যেই সীমাবদ্ধ নয়, তার ক্ষেত্র এখন সমগ্র বিশ্বব্যাপী।

এক-এক সময়ে পৃথিবীর অন্যায় অশান্তি নৃশংসতা দেখে আমরা বিষণ্ন হয়ে যাই। সংশয়ের ছায়ায় অন্ধকার হয়ে ওঠে আমাদের মন- সে অন্ধকার থেকে অব্যাহতির পথ খুঁজে পাইনে। ম্যাথু আর্নল্ডের মতো তখন আমাদেরও মনে হয়, এই পৃথিবীতে আশা বলে কিছু অবশিষ্ট নেই। একটি মাত্র কাজ আছে যা আমরা করতে পারি, সে হচ্ছে পরস্পরের প্রতি সত্য পালন করে চলা।”
