Gandhi Before India

India’s preeminent historian brings Gandhi Before India to Houston

The first in a multiple-volume biography of one of the 20th century’s most influential and controversial men, Gandhi Before India takes us from Gandhi's birth in 1869 through his two decades as a lawyer and community organizer in South Africa. The result, writes The Guardian, is “a work of vivid social history (and) fresh biography.” Winning access to private family papers and secret files kept by the British Empire, Guha captures the social, political, and personal worlds of a man whose legacy resonates in our time – for all time.

“Indian democracy's pre-eminent chronicler” (Time Magazine), Ramachandra Guha has held visiting professorships at Stanford, Yale, and the London School of Economics. He lives in Bangalore.
