Shimon Lev is an artist, researcher and writer and lives in Israel. He is currently pursuing his Ph D from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Indian Studies. A new title just published from Orient Blackswan is his Soulmates: The Story of Mahatma Gandhi and Hermann Kallenbach.
Over six decades after his death, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi continues to play a role in inspiring the lives, thought and philosophy of nations and their leaders. The few relatively unexplored gaps that remain in research into his life largely concern his personal life, comradeship and friendships-among them, his close association with Hermann Kallenbach, the German-Jewish architect with whom he developed an enigmatic friendship in South Africa.
Soulmates, about Mahatma Gandhi and Hermann Kallenbach in South Africa is the first full-length, comprehensive study of this unique relationship. The account of the strands linking these two remarkable lives is a valuable addition to Gandhi Studies. This volume will inform and fascinate a readership well beyond academic or professional interests.
