Resumen:

Gandhi Before India : The first volume of a magisterial biography: the definitive portrait of the life and work of one of the most abidingly influential - and controversial - men in modern history.

Here is a revelatory work of biography that takes us from Mohandas Gandhi's birth in 1869 through his upbringing in Gujarat, his two years as a student in London, and his two decades as a lawyer and community organizer in South Africa. Ramachandra Guha has uncovered a myriad of previously untapped documents, including private papers of Gandhi's contemporaries and co-workers, contemporary newspapers and court documents, the writings of Gandhi's children, secret files kept by British Empire functionaries.

Using this wealth of material in a brilliantly nuanced narrative, Guha describes the social, political, and personal worlds in which Gandhi began his journey to become the modern era's most important and influential political actor. And Guha makes clear that Gandhi's work in South Africa - far from being a mere prelude to his accomplishments in India - was profoundly influential on his evolution as a political thinker, social reformer, and beloved leader.
