An exhaustive biography of the man still considered the conscience of the nation of India, this exploration of Mohandas Gandhi's life stretches from his childhood among the Gujarati merchants, through his time as a student in England, his years as a lawyer in South Africa, and his return to the Indian subcontinent and subsequent anticolonialist and nonviolent activities, to, ultimately, his assassination in 1948. Attali avoids both hagiography and hatchet job, presenting rather an objective, complete portrait of a man who has influenced leaders such as the Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King Jr., and Nelson Mandela, but who was not without his own weaknesses and contradictions.
"Un biografia exhaustiva del hombre todavia considerado como la conciencia de la nacion de la India, esta exploracion de la vida de Mohandas Gandhi abarca el periodo desde su infancia entre los comerciantes de Gujarat, pasando por sus estudios en Inglaterra, sus anos de abogado en Sudafrica y su regreso al subcontinente indio y subsiguiente accion anticolonial y no violenta, hasta llegar, finalmente, a su asesinato en 1948. Attali cae ni en la adulacion ni en la critica destructiva, presentando mas bien un retrato objetivo y completo de un hombre que influyo lideres como el Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King Jr. y Nelson Mandela, pero que tambien tenia sus faltas y contradicciones."
