Description
Although we tend to visualize Mohandas Gandhi in his old age—a peaceful sage leading India on its path toward its independence—many of his ideas and tactics were developed much earlier during his many years abroad. In this first book of a two-volume biography, the author of India After Gandhi shows us the young Gandhi studying law in Great Britain, a self-described "citizen of empire," and later as a 23-year-old lawyer in South Africa, where his dismay at racial divisions helped set the course for his future career as an opponent of imperialism and the liberator of his nation.

"[Ramachandra] Guha is a brilliant historian who combines the gift of a storyteller, the discipline of an academic and the critical ability of seeing Gandhi as a fascinating human being, by not placing him on a pedestal.... [He] has re-created the past by connecting scattered dots ... to weave a rich tapestry."—San Francisco Chronicle
