The Internationally Acclaimed Biography of One of History's Monumental Figures Gandhi: A Life The first biography of this important figure in over twenty years, Gandhi: A Life rescues the man from the myth, revealing the transformation of an ordinary, timid young man into a leader whose stand against a mighty empire brought millions together. "Until another Gandhi scholar comes along who digs deeper and can write more movingly, Gandhi scholarship will be well served by Chadha's effort." The Washington Post Book World "It is well-balanced, even-handed, and, like its subject, inspiring." Kirkus Reviews "An engaging work worthy of a wide audience." Library Journal "A sober, sensible, and notably fair account of this most quicksilver of personalities far from uncritical But on the whole he is approving, even reverential. Usually he convinces one that this is justified." Daily Telegraph (London) "The first major biography to appear for twenty years with] a depth and authority which others have lacked." The Independent (London)
