Mahatma Gandhi's Life and Legacy

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Pulitzer Prize–winner Joseph Lelyveld discusses the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi—his legacy in India’s imagination and in shaping its struggle for independence as a mass movement. Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India shows how Gandhi’s sense of mission, social values, and philosophy of nonviolent resistance were shaped in South Africa. Gandhi emerges as one of history’s most remarkable self-creations: a prosperous lawyer who became an ascetic in a loincloth, and was wholly dedicated to political and social action.
