    Pulitzer Prize-winner Joseph Lelyveld shows in vivid, unmatched detail how Gandhi's sense of mission, social values, and philosophy of nonviolent resistance were shaped on another subcontinent - during two decades in south Africa - and then tested by an India that quickly learned to revere him as a Mahatma, or 'Great Soul,' while following him only a small part of the way to the social transformation he envisioned. The man himself emerges as one of history’s most remarkable self-creations, a prosperous lawyer who became as ascetic in a loincloth wholly dedicated to political and social action,. Lelyveld leads readers step-by-step through the heroic – and tragic – last months of this selfless leader’s long campaign when his nonviolent efforts culminated in the partition of India, the creation of Pakistan, and a bloodbath of ethnic cleansing that ended only with his own assassination. This vital, brilliant reconsideration of Gandhi's ever-evolving legacy ensures his place in India's social conscience. Glossary, Chronology, Notes, Sources, Index. B&W photographs. 428p.
