Author Ramachandra Guha's «Gandhi: The Years That Changed the World, 1914-1948» is the second and concluding volume of the magisterial biography that began with the acclaimed Gandhi Before India, the definitive portrait of the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi.

In reconstructing Gandhi's life and work, Guha has drawn on 60 different archival collections, the most significant among them a previously unavailable collection of papers belonging to Gandhi himself. Using this wealth of material, Guha creates a portrait of Gandhi and of those closest to him – family, friends, political and social leaders – that illuminates the complexity inside his thinking, his motives, his actions and their outcomes as he engaged with every important aspect of social and public life in the India of his time.

At this event at Brazos Bookstore, Guha will present a lecture, followed by audience Q&A. Program attendance is free and open to the public; preregistration is required. Copies of the book will be available for purchase for $40 at the event venue.
