Overview

Each title in this series tells the story of a man or woman whose dedication to their chosen cause led to changes that affect all our lives today. Each includes a vivid description of the world in which the famous person lived. The life of one of India's greatest historical figures is told in a dramatic narrative and vividly drawn illustrations, from his earliest beginnings as a lawyer in the then British colony of South Africa at the end on the nineteenth century - where he first became involved in civil disobedience against the ruling power - to his peaceful protests that led eventually to India's independence. The reader learns, through his life, the recent history of India, first as a British colony, then as a free nation. By the story of his death, they can also begin to understand the deep religious divisions on the subcontinent that still give rise to conflict.
