Faith and Freedom: Gandhi in History offers a meticulously researched account of Gandhi—his historical background, campaigns, impact on Indian life, and the guidance he still continues to offer in dealing with contemporary problems. The book offers a particularly illuminating and long overdue account of Gandhi’s association with Muslim leaders, and shows how politically tragic religious nationalism can be. Written by one of India’s leading historians, this book is a must read for everyone interested in understanding the political landscape of modern India.
