MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

This was a nice way of reconnecting with Gandhi. The biography focuses a lot on the beginning of Gandhi’s actions, especially in South Africa, before his work in India. The drawings were very good. If you think you don’t really know about him, this would be a perfect introduction.

I enjoy this new Penguin collection, the biography of the Dalai Lama was very good as well.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT

The life of a true twentieth-century hero told in a vibrant graphic novel format.

Through his quietly powerful leadership and influential use of nonviolent resistance in India’s struggle against the British Raj, Mahatma Gandhi became one of the most revered figures of the modern era. While history has recorded Gandhi’s words and deeds, the man himself has been eclipsed by maxims of virtuosity that seem to have little resonance in our everyday lives. In Gandhi, the third volume in our exciting new manga biography series, created in conjunction with Emotional Content, Kazuki Ebine combines a gripping narrative with stunning illustrations to share Gandhi’s inspiring and deeply human story with a whole new generation of readers.
