Thomas Weber offers new and intriguing insights into the life and thought of one of the best known and most significant figures of the twentieth century. Whereas previous literature has tended to focus on Gandhi's political legacy, Weber explores the spiritual and philosophical richness of his relationships through biographical reflections on people who influenced Gandhi, and those who were, in turn, influenced by him.
