Mahatma Gandhi's Autobiography - Gandhi's Autobiography Gandhi's autobiography is in many ways unconventional and certainly not what I expected from such a renown figure in history. Firstly, the book does not cover a large portion if his politically active life, as Gandhi lived for approximately another twenty years after the events he describes.

The subtitle of the book is very appropriate, in that this book is not a 'history' book mapping out the political and social struggles of Gandhi, but rather a self-reflection on his life, told th...   [tags: Mohandas Gandhi Essays] 761 words
