Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book, the renowned author Ved Mehta brings Gandhi to life in all his holiness and humanness, shedding light on his principles and his purposes, his ideas and his actions. Through interviewing disciples of Gandhi in five countries, Mehta reconstructs in precise detail Gandhi's daily routine, recounts the story of his life, and presents the beliefs and practices of his apostles. Mehta's book, widely praised when it was first published in 1977, is a biographical portrait of Gandhi unlike any other.A remarkable examination of the life and work of a human being who has been extolled around the world as one of the greatest souls of all time. . . . A very readable account, dotted with sharply etched portraits.-Paul Johnson, New York TimesMeticulously researched, passionately felt, elegantly written.-Max LernerMehta's work . . . touches much more than the personality of Gandhi, for it deals with the more general issue of the evolution and maintenance of a cultural symbol. . . . Mehta has given us a sensitive view of India and a personalized experience of the meaning of Mahatma Gandhi.-Edward S. Kayes, American Historical ReviewAn outstanding book . . . aglow with illuminating detail.-John Grigg, The Listener

Synopsis:

Millions of words have been written about Mahatma Gandhi, yet he remains an elusive figure, an abstraction to the Western mind.
