4.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive, 7 Feb 2009

This review is from: Gandhi: The Man, His People & the Empire: The Man, His People and the Empire (Hardcover)
I enjoyed this biography of Gandhi. He became more human and less of saint by the time I'd finished. That is not to dismiss his achievements or his wisdom, just to say that unlike some accounts of his life his flaws were not glossed over.

If I had one very minor complaint it would be that one or two extra maps of India would have been useful. The 19th century map provided at the beginning was of little use as an aid to understanding the complex negotiations and political maneuvering between Congress, The Muslim League, and the British prior to independence.

Don't let that one minor complaint put you off reading this. You'll understand a great man a lot better.

This review is from: Gandhi: The Man, His People & the Empire: The Man, His People and the Empire (Hardcover)
The long but interesting book provides some very valuable insights to a rather strange man. He was obviously very driven but must have been quite a demanding person to live with. The book provides more detail than was in the recent BBC series nad is a good source of reference. My only concern was that it was quite a difficult read with at times a rather confusing narrative.

If Gandhi's your man this is the book, but I doubt this will make any converts due to its bland concentration on the facts, not offering mcuh in th eway of opinion form the rather and very uncritical - not surprising given their relationship.
