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.

Review:

Ashe demytholized both English humanism and eastern religion, and draws a portrait at once common-sensical and profound, There is akind of genius in [it]. (Michael Novak The New Republic)

Now, when [Gandhi's] name is so casually invoked, this biography will help keep (or set) the record straight on the Indian leader....If Gandhi should remains enigmatic, his life and techings are set forth in a book that is a model of fairness, proportion, and restraint....[Ashe's] quotations are pithy and pointed; the anecdores are spare but illuminating....It is refreshing to have a striaght of a very human being. (The New York Times Book Review)
