Summary
Mahatma Gandhi is among the most beloved and respected figures worldwide. This info-packed biography introduces young readers to the Mahatma and his role in the Indian independence movement. Readers will learn how protests such as the Salt March and fasting helped bring about the end of British rule in India. Particular attention is paid to Gandhi's use of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience and how inspirational his methods became to freedom fighters around the world. Also explored is the concept of ahimsa, which has deep roots in Indian religions and played a major part in shaping Gandhi's nonviolent worldview
