The eminent historian Ramachandra Guha's latest book, 'Gandhi Before India' will radically alter our understanding and appreciation of one of the greatest human beings to have ever lived. Based on a wealth of new and original research, this magnum opus explores the dramatic and profoundly moving experiments of the iconoclast truth seeker, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
