Gandhi: A Study in Revolution
Back to library
From Amazon.com: "Few biographies capture the complex personality of Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)—theologian, philosopher, activist, and statesman—so successfully. Geoffrey Ashe separates myth from reality and clarifies the incredible polarities of his protagonist's life, from middle-class lawyer to non violent revolutionary, from family man to man of the world. The resulting portrait offers readers insight into a man whose example influenced the powerful and the impoverished, whose nonviolent activism impacted the national destinies of India and Pakistan, and whose teachings and techniques continue to inspire worldwide struggles for political, economic and social justice."
