Among the present Chief ministers in the different regions of India, Jyoti Basu happen to be holding the reins of power in region for the longest period at a stretch. He is unparallel in many ways. His life history indicates how being committed to destroy a system one can still become an upholder of that system. Right now Jyoti Basu has become the 'great mediator' of our national politics. However, the purpose of this book is not to indulge in unalloyed adulation or biased panegyrics born out of an overwhelming infatuation but to present in a highly readable and thought-provoking manner a balanced and level-headed, impartial and thoroughgoing evaluation of his regime for the last 14 years, highlighting both the positive and negative contours of this long period with the help of a massive amount of carefully collected data : historical, economic, political and statistical. In various chapters the author has wielded his pen almost like a sword and made a shrewd and sardonic, insightful and intriguing and also perhaps a heretical and iconoclastic anaysis of the jig-saw puzzle which is known as leftist politics in West Bengal or for that matter, India, at the present moment. Surajit Kumar Dasgupta (b.1938), son of a swashbuckling airlines officer who in the first phase of his life had a colorful career in the Norwegian Navy during the second world war days, was initially a Scholarship-winning student of Science, he Ultimately passed his B.A. (Hons.) in Economics & Political Science from Calcutta's Presidency College and later took an M.A. degree in Political Science from Calcutta University. In his college days in the fifties he was widely reputed as an romantic poet of West Bengal whose surrealistic love-poems attracted the admiring notice of the intelligentsia. For more than 20 years ha had been connected in different capacities with Hindusthan Standard, Free Press Journal, Industrial Times, and Amrita Bazar Patrika.
