KIRKUS REVIEW

Raman is an Indian nationalist, the London editor of the United Press of India, a man respected by both sides of the titanic struggle for Indian independence. In this slim volume he speaks from his personal knowledge of successive utterances made by Gandhi related to non-violent non-cooperation, to the problems of India's part in the war, to negotiations with Japan, and so on. With editorial comment as connecting links, this makes virtually a continued statement from the leader himself-- and, whether through Raman's interpretation or the reader's, the final impression is visionary, unrealistic and hopeless, in a world threatened by madmen.
