Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-This comprehensive yet concise look at the man and his monumental achievements also paints a picture of India at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Sherrow presents a great deal of factual information here, yet does so with only minor gaps in transition from one point to the next. She covers everything from the caste system and childhood marriage customs to the Boer War in South Africa and Home Rule in India. Throughout, the themes of Gandhi's remarkable life are developed: vegetarianism, self-discipline, equality, and a broad and complete view of politics and national self-determination. The volume concludes with a discussion of the man's impact on the world beyond India. Numerous quotes from Gandhi and some people who knew him personally are included. Occasional phrases such as ``social connections'' needed to practice law in India, ``mediation,'' and ``just result'' in connection with his law practice may not be immediately clear to students, but should not impede their overall comprehension.-Nancy E. Zuwiyya, Binghamton High School, NY
Hazel Rochman
Beginning with Gandhi's personal experience of racism when he was thrown off a whites-only railway carriage in South Africa in 1893, Sherrow tells the story of how he fought all his life against oppression, first in South Africa and then in his native India. The focus is on Gandhi's idealism, his religion, and his political leadership. While the author mentions his sometimes difficult family relationships, she concentrates on his fight to end the caste system and to free India from British rule. She shows how his commitment to civil disobedience and nonviolent protest had a profound influence, not only at home, but also on world leaders. The writing style is clear and direct, and the book will have several black-and-white photographs (unseen in galley). Sherrow draws heavily on Gandhi's "Autobiography" and other primary and secondary sources, documented by chapter at the back of the book. Readers will be compelled by the biography of a man whose active policy of nonviolence changed the world.
