This account of the life and work of iconic Indian leader Mohandas Gandhi captures his historical Quit India movement in its complexity. Gandhi’s beliefs are contextualized through an exploration of India as a British colony, the country’s push for independence, and its later division into two nations, India and Pakistan. Dramatic black-and-white photographs accompany the narrative. Back matter includes a time line of Indian history and Gandhi’s life; notes on sources; a glossary; a list of texts, a DVD, and Web sites for more information on Gandhi and India; suggestions for other topics to research; and an index.
