Penguin Putnam Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in 1869 in British-occupied India. Though he studied law in London and spent his early adulthood in South Africa, he remained devoted to his homeland and spent the later part of his life working to make India an independent nation. Calling for non-violent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights around the world. Gandhi is recognized internationally as a symbol of hope, peace, and freedom.
Baker & Taylor Presents the life and accomplishments of the Indian statesman and peacemaker, from his early life in British-controlled India to his nonviolent actions to achieve the nation's independence.
