ALA Booklist
How did a shy boy become Mahatma Gandhi, the founder and leader of the nonviolent resistance movement in India's struggle against British rule? Despite a few typos, Ebine's nicely drawn manga biography is a clear and concise introduction to Gandhi's life. The biography not only touches upon Gandhi's major accomplishments, such as fighting against Indian apartheid in South Africa and promoting India's independence, but also humanizes Gandhi by showing his struggles with insecurity as a young man. His self-realization and development as a leader, coupled with references to some of his best-known sayings, help to provide a complete picture of this humble and revered man's life. With its detailed dates of events, author's note, and bibliography, this title is a great addition to social studies curricula, and it will have special appeal to budding young activists and idealists.

Through his quietly powerful leadership and influential use of nonviolent resistance in India's struggle against the British Raj, Mahatma Gandhi became one of the most revered figures of the modern era. While history has recorded Gandhi's words and deeds, the man himself has been eclipsed by maxims of virtuosity that seem to have little resonance in our everyday lives. In Gandhi, the third volume in our exciting new manga biography series, created in conjunction with Emotional Content, Kazuki Ebine combines a gripping narrative with stunning illustrations to share Gandhi's inspiring and deeply human story with a whole new generation of readers. Developed in conjunction with Emotional Content.
