Great Soul Mahatma Gandhi & His Struggle With India - Joseph Lelyveld

A highly original, stirring book on Mahatma Gandhi that deepens our sense of his achievements and disappointments. This is a vital, brilliant reconsideration of Gandhi’s extraordinary struggles on two continents, of his fierce but, finally, unfulfilled hopes, and of his ever-evolving legacy, which more than six decades after his death still ensures his place as India’s social conscience – and not just India’s.
Thousands of books have been written on Mahatma Gandhi with each new one claiming to have discovered an unknown facet of his eventful life.

This book is a Brilliant and glittering match, brimming with - well soul......................"
