Mahatma Gandhi And His Struggle With India - Joseph Lelyveld

Written by Joseph Lelyveld
Language: English


A highly original, stirring book on Mahatma Gandhi that deepens our sense of his achievements and disappointmentsΓÇöhis success in seizing IndiaΓÇÖs imagination and shaping its independence struggle as a mass movement, his recognition late in life that few of his followers paid more than lip service to his ambitious goals of social justice for the countryΓÇÖs minorities, outcasts, and rural poor.

Pulitzer PrizeΓÇôwinner Joseph Lelyveld shows in vivid, unmatched detail how GandhiΓÇÖs sense of mission, social values, and philosophy of nonviolent resistance were shaped on another subcontinentΓÇöduring two decades in South AfricaΓÇöand then tested by an India that quickly learned to revere him as a Mahatma, or ΓÇ£Great Soul,ΓÇ¥ while following him only a small part of the way to the social transformation he envisioned. The man himself emerges as one of historyΓÇÖs most remarkable self-creations, a prosperous lawyer who became an ascetic in a loincloth wholly dedicated to political and social action. Lelyveld leads us step-by-step through the heroicΓÇöand tragicΓÇölast months of this selfless leaderΓÇÖs 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.

India and its politicians were ready to place Gandhi on a pedestal as ΓÇ£Father of the NationΓÇ¥ but were less inclined to embrace his teachings. Muslim support, crucial in his rise to leadership, soon waned, and the oppressed untouchablesΓÇöfor whom Gandhi spoke to Hindus as a wholeΓÇöproduced their own leaders.

Here is a vital, brilliant reconsideration of GandhiΓÇÖs extraordinary struggles on two continents, of his fierce but, finally, unfulfilled hopes, and of his ever-evolving legacy, which more than six decades after his death still ensures his place as IndiaΓÇÖs social conscienceΓÇöand not just IndiaΓÇÖs.
