Overview: Gandhi Before India

About the Book: Gandhi Before India From Indias finest historian, a brilliant new biography of Indias greatest manIn 1893, when Mohandas Gandhi set sail for South Africa, he was a 23-year-old briefless lawyer who had failed to establish himself in India. The two decades that he spent in South Africa were to be the making of the Mahatma.

It was during his years in England and South Africa that he came to understand the nature of imperialism and racism and it was in South Africa that he forged the philosophy and techniques that would undermine and ultimately destroy the British Empire.Based on a wealth of new material, and archival research in four continents, Gandhi Before India presents a vivid portrait of Gandhi and the world he lived in, a world of sharp contrasts between the coastal culture of Gujarat, High Victorian London, and colonial South Africa. It explores in rich detail his experiments with dissident cults such as Tolstoyans and vegetarians his friendships with radical Jews, heterodox Christians, and devout Muslims his enmities and rivalries and his failures as a husband and father.
