Description
A historian and television producer as well as a fellow of the Royal Historical Society, Jad Adams traces the course of Mohandas Gandhi's multi-faceted life and the development of his religious, political, and social thinking over seven tumultuous decades. Adams's elegant account moves from Gandhi's comfortable upbringing in a princely state in Gujarat to his early civil rights campaigns, his activism through civil disobedience in the 1920s, his emergence as a world icon in the 1930s, and finally his assassination by a Hindu extremist in 1948, only months after the birth of an independent India.

"Provocative. Adams strips away Gandhi's saintly aura and explores the duality of India's most famous leader."Financial Times (London)

"Adding fresh insight to a life so well documented is no mean feat, but Adams's biography of Gandhi eschews hagiography and offers critical insights about the revered political and spiritual leader."Publishers Weekly
