"Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle With India" (Alfred A. Knopf), by Joseph Lelyveld: In this revealing, original portrait of the man known as the "Father of India," Joseph Lelyveld charts the development of Gandhi's social vision, tying his early experiences as a lawyer in South Africa to the movement he went on to lead at home.
"There's a tragic element in Gandhi's life, not because he was assassinated, nor because his noblest qualities inflamed the hatred in his killer's heart," Lelyveld writes. "The tragic element is that he was ultimately forced, like Lear, to see the limits of his ambition to remake his world."
Mr. Lelyveld has said his work was taken out of context.
