Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] monumental biography. . . . Extraordinarily intimate.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Wise, graceful and entertaining. . . . Gandhi: The Years That Changed the World, 1914-1948 will not be bettered, and it is essential reading even for those who do not think of themselves as India buffs, because Gandhi is a maker of our whole modern world.” —Ferdinand Mount, The Wall Street Journal

“A comprehensive account of the most remarkable figure of the past century.” —San Francisco Chronicle
 
“An important biography. . . . Guha admires Gandhi’s achievements, but does not gloss over the man’s flaws.” —The New York Times

“Expertly chronicled.” —The Washington Post
 
“Massive, meticulous, and engrossing.” —The Times Literary Supplement
 
“Deeply affecting. . . . A rendering of the subject in such fullness that the reader feels himself wrestling directly with the protagonist, his time, and his ideas. . . . Guha’s biography builds with perfect tone and economy of expression towards its moving conclusion.” —Financial Times
 
“[A] monumental biography.” —Edward Glaeser, The Wall Street Journal
 
“The book’s details of Gandhi’s life help the reader comprehend how he influenced the world.” —The Christian Science Monitor
 
“Drawing from hundreds of sources, including some never before available to historians, Guha presents a nuanced portrait of a brilliant spiritual and political leader with egalitarian principles and a vision for a nonsectarian India. . . . Readers will be richly reward.” —Library Journal (starred review)
 
“Magnificent.” —The American Interest
 
“A magisterial account of a compassionate man. . . . The author skillfully traces the evolution of Gandhi’s political beliefs. . . . He conveys Gandhi’s playfulness as well as his intellect.” —The Economist
 
“Dramatic and detailed. . . . [The] second and final volume of Guha’s huge, definitive biography of Mahatma Gandhi draws on every imaginable source.” —Foreign Affairs
 
“A thoroughly researched and well-written account and a faithful chronicle.” —New Statesman
 
“Guha mines newly discovered archival material to produce a portrait of the Indian leader that is both panoramic in scope and surprisingly intimate, both admiring of Gandhi and cognizant of his flaws. . . . Incisively written, this is a landmark account of Gandhi’s engagement with the world he would transform forever.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“This masterly assessment should serve for several generations, and for non-Indians as well.” —The Literary Review
 
“Superb. On nearly every page, Guha offers evidence why Gandhi remains relevant in the world 70 years after his death.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
 
“The most exhaustive account yet of Gandhi’s temporal and spiritual crusades. A vivid and absorbing read. . . . Guha is as dogged a researcher as Gandhi was an agitator.” —The Sunday Times (London)
