'...this book is a gem.' Joy Huntley, Perspectives '...highly recommended, exceptionally insightful.' Robert N.Minor, Journal of Church and State '...Bhikhu Parekh's book will easily rank as one of the most outstanding contributions to the study of Gandhi. It is absorbingly interesting, sophisticated and subtle in its argument yet easy to read.' Times Higher Education Supplement '...a deft and sympathetic portrayal of Gandhi's ideas...'
