Gandhi: The Man, His People & the Empire

This definitive biography of one of the most intriguing figures of the 20th century, written by his grandson, is the first to give a complete and balanced account of Gandhi's remarkable life, full of contrasts and contradictions: the westernised London-trained lawyer who wore the clothes of India's poorest and spun cotton by hand; the apostle of non-violence who lead 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. Gandhi's development during his long life and the conflicts in his own personality are as much a part of this book as his campaigns against racial discrimination in South Africa and for Swaraj in India, his development of non-violent resistance (satyagraha), and the problem of Hindu-Muslim conflict, the resolution of which was one of the passions of Gandhi's life and which is still of vital significance today.

A former parliamentarian in India, Professor Rajmohan Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, currently teaches in the USA at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has written widely on the history of the Indian independence movement and its leaders, and on Hindu-Muslim relations. His recent works include Understanding the Muslim Mind and Revenge and Reconciliation: Understanding South Asian History
