From the Back Cover
Louis Fischer's memorable biography of Mahatma Gandhi, the man who led the fight for Indian independence and Gandhi's assassination by a Hindu fanatic only a few months after freedom from colonial rule was won.
Fischer was an American journalist who knew Gandhi well and understood his unique strategy of 'satyagraha', or passive resistance, which earned him the admiration of millions throughout the world. On his death, Albert Einstein wrote: 'Gandhi had demonstrated that a powerful human following can be assembled not only through the cunning game of the usual political manoeuvres and trickeries but through the cogent example of a morally superior conduct of life. In our time of utter moral decadence he was the only statesman to stand for a higher human relationship in the political sphere.'
'One of the best books ever written on Gandhi'
TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT
'Gandhi was not only a saint, he was a humorist. The two are not often in combination, but when they are, the creature is invincible. Louis Fischer really explains Gandhi.'
'Equally successful in presenting the world figure with a cure for the world's woes and the plain little man with the kind look and smile.'
'Generous and conscientious…You feel Gandhi would have liked it that way.'
NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE
'The best biography of Gandhi…I was enthralled from the first page…it changed my life.'
