The India Struggle
Note by Sisir K Bose & Sugata Bose
The Indian Struggle, 1920-1942, is Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's major political study of the movement for independence in which he himself was a leading participant. The book gives a lucid, analytical narrative of the freedom struggle from the time of the non-co-operation and Khilafat movements to the Quit India and the Azad Hind movements. Netaji's reflections of the key themes in Indian history and a finely etched assessment of Mahatma Gandhi's role in it, enrich the story of the political upheavals of the inter-war period....more

An Indian Pilgrim (An Unfinished Autobiography)
Note by Sisir K. Bose & Sugata Bose

The Alternative Leadership
Note by Sisir K Bose & Sugata Bose
Between his resignation as Congress president in Calcutta on April 29, 1939 and his escape from his Elgin Road home on the night of 16-17 January 1941, Subhas Chandra Bose tried to give the Indian people an alternative leadership at the national level in place of the old guard represented by the Gandhian High Command.

Letters to Emilie Schenkl (1934-1942)
Note by Sisir K Bose & Sugata Bose
Perhaps the least known aspect of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's many-sided personality was his love for Emilie Schenkl, his Austrian wife. Bose met Emilie Schenkl in June 1934 in Vienna, developed a close relationship during his forced European exile, secretly married her in December 1937, and had a daughter, Anita, in November 1942. This special volume of the Collected Works illuminates the human and emotional aspects of Netaji's many-splendoured life. ...more
