Profound and enlightening. . . . Expands our grasp of some of the ultimate questions of our time. --Robert Jay Lifton"
It is the triumph of Erikson's book that in uncovering the inner sources of Gandhi's power it does not dissolve but deepens his inherent moral ambiguity. . . . [This] penetrating book . . . deepens out understanding not only of the inward sources of personal greatness but those, as well, of its self-defeat. --Clifford Geertz"
Gandhi's Truth, even more brilliantly than its predecessor, Young Man Luther, shows that psychoanalytic theory, in the hands of an interpreter both resourceful and wise, can immeasurably enrich the study of 'great lives' and of much else besides. . . . [The book's] richness and almost inexhaustible suggestiveness . . . cannot be conveyed in a summary. --Christopher Lasch"
