Various Key Issues In Gandhi`S Life And Legacy Are Alsop Examined. Gandhi`S Sexuality And His Programme For Women Are Looked At In The Light Of Feminist Critiques. Gandhi`S Inconsistencies, Mistakes And Failures (For Example As Husband And Father) Are Carefully Scrutinised. Hardiman`S Effort Is To Show Precisely How Gandhi, Despite His Limitations, Provides A Beacon For Women And Men Because Of The Uncompromising Honesty Of His Political Life And Moral Activism.
