Gandhi (DK Life Stories)

Written by Diane Bailey

In this kids' biography, discover the inspiring life story of Mohandas Gandhi, whose teachings of compassion and non-violence helped to win his country's freedom.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born at a time when his home country was choked under the oppression of British rule. Many thought that violence was the only way to fight back, but Gandhi disagreed. Instead, he successfully used his teachings of non-violence and civil disobedience to win his country's freedom, and to promote his philosophy of peace and equality. In this biography for kids ages 8-12, see how Gandhi--called Mahatma, or "great soul," by his many followers--changed the world through his words and deeds, which still resonate worldwide today.
