About The Book

THE INSPIRING LIFE STORY OF A TRUE TWENTIETH-CENTURY HERO

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, award-winning manga artist Kazuki Ebine combines a gripping narrative with stunning illustrations to re-create the life of a man who-like all of us-grappled with doubt and failure, but strove to keep faith in his beliefs and lead his people to a better life. Gandhi’s inspiring and deeply human story will appeal to a whole new generation of readers.
