“Great Soul”: A Gandhi biography that will break your heart – Nonfiction – Salon.com


Apparently, there’s room for one more biography of Gandhi. This review is a pleasure to read.

Gandhi is, to my mind, the gold standard of 20th-century political greatness. He produced tremendous effects, overwhelmingly good, and he achieved them not by luck, force or guile but virtuously, by persuasion and example. Martin Luther King is perhaps his peer in these respects, but the scale of Gandhi’s accomplishment was much greater.
