The definitive biography of one of this century's most important-and controversial-figures. Drawing on sources only recently made available, Judith Brown sketches a fresh and surprising portrait of Gandhi within the context of his time, in which the Indian leader emerges as neither the plaster saint nor the wily politician, but as a complex man whose actions followed honorably from his convictions.
