About the Author:

Mohandas Gandhi was born in Western India in 1869. After studying law in London and living in South Africa for many years, he returned to India in 1915, where he spent the rest of his life campaigning for India's independence and promoting his fundamental principles of truth and non-violence. He died in 1948.

From AudioFile:

To his credit, Bill Wallace reads this book with no attempt at an accent. To do so easily could devolve into parody. So he plays it straight. Nonetheless, for the first several minutes of listening one has to get used to not hearing an Indian accent. The book covers Gandhi's life from youthful rebellion to his law practice in South Africa and his leadership of the movement to free India from British rule. Gandhi explains how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance. His life propels the work, so Wallace does not try to artificially embellish it with vocal bombast. Yet he reads with emotion as befits the writing. He pronounces Indian words and locations clearly and with facility. R.C.G. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Western India in 1869. He was educated in London and later travelled to South Africa, where he experienced racism and took up the rights of Indians, instituting his first campaign of passive resistance. In 1915 he returned to British-controlled India, bringing to a country in the throes of independence his commitment to non-violent change, and his belief always in the power of truth. Under Gandhi s lead, millions of protesters would engage in mass campaigns of civil disobedience, seeking change through ahimsa, or non-violence. For Gandhi, the long path towards Indian independence would lead to imprisonment and hardship, yet he never once forgot the principles of truth and non-violence so dear to him. Written in the 1920s, Gandhi s autobiography tells of his struggles and his inspirations; a powerful and enduring statement of an extraordinary life. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780141032733
