The South African Gandhi; Stretcher Bearer of Empire / Ashwin Desai & Goolam Vahed

Availability: Out of stock
Paperback 343 Pages Published 2015
£16.99

In the pantheon of freedom icons, Gandhi has pride of place. But he was a complicated man. The South African Gandhi reminds us that as an emerging leader he was eager to show his loyalty to the British Empire, especially through service in armed conflicts. This clear-eyes and fearless history shows that Gandhi's time on African soil was marked by a desire to seek the integration of Indians - excluding many basic rights, and Africans, from his moral compass.
