This book tells the story of
Gandhis life from the time he left South Africa to his dramatic assassination
in 1948. Bringing forth new readings of his arguments with Ambedkar, Jinnah,
Churchill and others, as well as new insights into our freedom movement and its
many strands, the work has a Tolstoyan sweep, showing us Gandhi as he was
understood by his contemporaries. Drawing on never before seen sources and
animated by the author wonderful sense of drama and politics, it is the most
ambitious book yet on the father of the nation.
