A highly original, stirring book on Mahatma Gandhi that deepens our sense of his achievements and disappointments. This is a vital, brilliant reconsideration of Gandhi’s extraordinary struggles on two continents, of his fierce but, finally, unfulfilled hopes, and of his ever-evolving legacy, which more than six decades after his death still ensures his place as India’s social conscience – and not just India’s.
