Path dependence, as understood through the prism of the paths not taken, means more than ‘hisÂ�tory matÂ�ters’. Certain institutions in certain conÂ�texts become self-Â�enforcing in the sense that the alÂ�ternÂ�atives conÂ�tinue to appear unattractive. Beliefs of the players then matÂ�ter as much as hisÂ�tory. 42 Path depend­ ence in analytic narÂ�ratÂ�ives also implies that once certain institutional arÂ�range­ ments are in place – and with them certain distributions of power and authority – it becomes more difficult to reverse or change course.

How to incorpÂ�orÂ�ate a definition that allows for both materÂ�ial and ethical factors remains a central challenge in the literÂ�atÂ�ure. 28 This is a method that posits that the prefÂ�er­ ences of actors can be revealed by their behaÂ�viÂ�our but it asÂ�sumes that such prefÂ�erÂ�ences hold a normÂ�atively ‘true’ status, thus ignoring the effect of decision-Â� making errors, miss-Â�information, miss-Â�perception, etc. 29 To be perÂ�suasÂ�ive it needs to be proven that the actors are players in the sense that their actions are cohesive and stra­ tegic.

Further­ more, despite the promising questions at the start of the book, Zachariah ends up underestimating the tactical and straÂ�tegic side to Nehru’s actions and over-Â� emphasising the substantive conÂ�tent of the ‘Nehruvian vision’. Examining Nehru biographies reveals how little the field has moved since the late 1950s. There has been a tendÂ�ency in the literÂ�atÂ�ure to repeat and embellish biographical details but not to generate new insights about Nehru, his polÂ�itics and his times. This is posÂ�sibly due to the fact that there has not been an attempt to apply fresh anaÂ�lytÂ�ical approaches drawn from the study of polÂ�itics and research on changing sociÂ�eties or sociÂ�eties in transÂ�ition.
