A revisionist assessment of Gandhi's life and conflicted character includes coverage of his privileged upbringing in Gujarat, early civil rights campaigns, famous embrace of civil disobedience in the 1920s and 1930s and his 1948 assassination months after India's independence.

Norton Pub
Jad Adams traces the course of Gandhi’s multi-faceted life, and the development of his religious, political, and social thinking over seven tumultuous decades: from his comfortable upbringing in a princely state in Gujarat; his early civil rights campaigns; his leadership through civil disobedience in the 1920s and 1930s that made him a world icon; and finally to his assassination by a Hindu extremist in 1948, only months after the birth of an independent India.An elegant and masterly account of one of the seminal figures of twentieth-century history, Adams presents for the first time the true story behind the man whose life may truly be said to have changed the world.
“Provocative. Adams strips away Gandhi's saintly aura and explores the duality . . . of India's most famous leader.”—Financial Times
