Chadhas method seems to consist mainly of a frank detailing of the Indian revolutionary leaders personal flaws. But the sheer amount of biographical data in this book is impressive. And the details of Gandhis assassination in 1948 and the subsequent prosecution of his killers are extremely well researched.In his introduction to the book, Chadha fleetingly suggests that Gandhis significance to the liberation of India is overemphasized at the expense of his broader contributions to humanism, although the evidence presented later in the biography might indicate that the two are profoundly interconnected.Making copious use of Gandhis collected writings, Chadha presents a highly detailed portrait that lends new insight into one of the 20th centurys most profound spiritual leaders.
