Opening with Gandhi’s triumphant return to India in 1915 after decades abroad, and ending with his tragic assassination in 1949, Gandhi: The Years that Changed the World is a remarkable, moving portrait that provides a crucial re-evaluation of India’s iconic leader for a new generation.
Drawing on a wealth of newly uncovered materials unavailable to previous biographers, acclaimed historian and author Ramachandra Guha brings the past to life with extraordinary grace and clarity. Deploying his gifts as a storyteller and scholar, Guha presents Gandhi as both a fascinating human being–a man of fierce hope, eccentric personal beliefs, and sometimes dark and alarming contradictions–as well as a dynamic political force and global icon.
Sharp, insightful, balanced, and impeccably researched, this free-standing sequel to Guha’s magisterial biography Gandhi Before India is an indispensable resource for a contemporary understanding of Gandhi’s ever-evolving legacy.
