Overview

Nanda (founder-director, Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, India) presents 29 of his previously published essays reflecting on the legacy of Mohandas K. "Mahatma" Gandhi. Half of the articles are devoted to Gandhi's historical achievements and his interactions with other philosophical and political points-of-view. Further articles explore more abstract questions of how Gandhi has been interpreted by later scholars, artists, and political movements. Nanda defends Gandhi against many charges of hypocrisy that have been laid at his door over the decades since his assassination. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
