Summary
Two wars, seemingly fought for very different reasons, occurred at opposite ends of the globe in the middle of the nineteenth century. But they were both fought in a world still dominated by Great Britain, and the battle cry in both conflicts was freedom. Gandhi raises new questions about these wars that changed the world
Summary
Examines two of the nineteenth century's most consequential struggles--the 1857 uprising again British rule in India, and the American Civil War--and discusses the similarities between them in the context of a century dominated by British power
