Gandhi, to multitudes of his fellow countrymen the embodiment of the pathetic spirit, and to Viceroy and to Secretaries of State a severe political problem, is admittedly an historic personality, and has become one of the outstanding leaders of the new East. He has been variously described as a saint, a Mahatma, an astute politician, and much else; for he is one of those rare persons to take their most profound religious convictions as at salute directives in political leadership. In this book Carl Heath calls for an intelligent and sympathetic understanding perhaps the most disturbing man in the Commonwealth and Empire." -- from the front fold over panel blurb.
