Summary
Gandhi has inspired civil rights and liberation movements the world over. Yet he was also a man of many contradictions. His resistance to racism strikes a thoroughly modern note, but his vision of India was that of an almost medieval society. Adams delineates Gandhi's incredible drive, including his relentless reinvention of his own persona
