GANDHI learnt how to face death and confront it long before he was assassinated, James Douglass argues in Gandhi and the Unspeakable. He looks back to Gandhi's time in South Africa and his rise to influence. His exploration of the circumstances of Gandhi's death also asks questions, such as whether some of the new Indian government were implicated in his murder because its members feared that their power was threatened by his vision of non-violence and reconciliation (Orbis/Alban, £16.99 (£15.30); 978-1-57075-963-5).
