Editorial Reviews

Robert Jay Lifton - The American Scholar
“Profound and enlightening. . . . Expands our grasp of some of the ultimate questions of our time.”
Clifford Geertz - New York Review of Books
“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.”
Christopher Lasch - New York Times Book Review
“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.”
