Aiming to avoid the hagiographical approach of previous biographies of Gandhi, this work incorporates an exploration of his weaknesses and the controversial features of his public and personal life. It also presents a detailed account of the planning of his assassination, its execution, and the trial that followed it. With the help of Gandhi's own writings and many government papers which have become accessible in recent years, the book takes readers through the events which became turning points in Gandhi's intellectual, political and spiritual development.
