Description

This book charts the life of Mahatma Gandhi, president of the Indian National Congress and peaceloving protestor for independence. Born to a Hindu family in India in 1869, Gandhi devoted his life to politics and non-violent protests. After training in London and working as a lawyer in South Africa, Gandhi returned to India where he set about creating independence from the British rule. After protest marches, hunger strikes and prison sentences, India finally achieved independence in 1947. However, as the book explains, the creation of Pakistan for Muslims led to Muslim/Hindu tension, partition and much bloodshed, events leading to the tragic assassination of Gandhi in 1948. This title provides a reference for Key Stage 1 History where pupils learn about past events from the history of Britain and the wider world, together with the lives if significant individuals from the recent and more distant past.
