On January 30, 1948, Mohandas Gandhi, the world's most revered champion of nonviolent civil disobedience, was murdered in cold blood by a man he'd never met. Gandhi was legendary--in his native India and around the globe--as the Mahatma, a "great soul." So why did Nathuram Godse, an ardent Hindu nationalist, murder him?

Darkness Everywhere traces the remarkable journey of one of the twentieth century's most unconventional warriors--and his assassins--to their fateful encounter in Delhi. This is a story of Gandhi's great achievements, the enemies who brought him down, and the legacy that continues to inspire the fight for freedom and justice around the world.
