    Summary: 
    Lelyveld reconsiders the life a Gandhi--a "self-creation", a prosperous lawyer who became an ascetic in a loincloth wholly dedicated to political and social action. After two decades in South Africa, Gandhi turned to India. Lelyveld follows the heroic, and tragic, last months of the leader's long campaign when his nonviolent efforts culminated in the partition of India, the creation of Pakistan, and a bloodbath of ethnic cleansing that eneded only with his own assassination.--Excerpted from bk. jacket.
