Going Native: Gandhi’s Relationship with Western Women by Thomas Weber

Gandhi is the topic of the season going by another book on him: Going Native: Gandhi's Relationship with Western Women by Thomas Weber. It is self explanatory and came to me via this book review in Outlook.


Excerpt from the review by Tridip Suhrud:


Thomas Weber is one of those rare scholars who wrote the most authoritative account of the Dandi March, gave a history of the Shanti Sena and studied the impact of Gandhian ideals in movements such as Chipko. This enabled him to understand the people around Gandhi who influenced him and were in turn influenced by him—Gandhi both as a disciple and a mentor.
