The Anatomy of an Assassination


Manohar Malgonkar's The Men who killed Gandhi was recently reissued by Roli Books, in time for the World Book Fair. Stuningly produced, this edition, the 11th, goes beyond the previous 10 with the inclusion of new illustrations and photographs, and documents that could not have been included when the book was first published during the Emergency years.

A valuable addition to our Gandhi Studies section, the book is gripping. Written carefully- the background research itself took decades- and with insight- the book has the flamboyance of Malgonkar, with the added benefit of recent technology and access- in particular to Gopal Godse's home where some of the photographs included in this edition were found.

In the General section as well. Rs 395, ISBN: 9788174366177
