Gandhi : The Man, His People and the Empire Paperback
This monumental and authoritative biography of one of the most intriguing and complexfigures of the 20th century, written by his grandson, gives a complete and balanced accountof Gandhi's remarkable life, the development of his beliefs, his political campaigns,and his complex relationships with his family.
Gandhi's life was one of contrasts andcontradictions: the westernised Middle Temple lawyer who wore the clothes of India's poorest and spun cotton by hand; the apostle of non-violence who led an Indian ambulance corps in the Boer War and urged Indians to enlist in the First World War; the champion of Indian independence who never hated the British.Written with unprecedented insight and access to family archives, this definitive biography of Gandhi sheds new light on the life of a man who was far more complicated and conflicted than his received public image suggests.
For the first time, this book gives us the true Gandhi, the man as well as the legend.
