Gandhi: A Biography

By Geoffrey Ashe

A detailed account of the life of one of the most celebrated men in the world.

Few biographies capture the complex personality of Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869–1948) — theologian, philosopher, activist, and statesman — so successfully. His everyday experiences are examined as closely as his extraordinary accomplishments.

Geoffrey Ashe deftly separates myth from reality and clarifies the incredible polarities of his protagonist’s life, from middle-class lawyer to nonviolent revolutionary, from family man to man of the world. The resulting portrait offers readers acute insights into a man whose example influenced the powerful and the impoverished, whose nonviolent activism forever impacted the national destinies of India and Pakistan, and whose teachings and techniques continue to inspire worldwide struggles for political, economic, and social justice.
