Gr 6-9 These biographies are detailed but flawed. The chronologically arranged chapters cover major events in the menâ€™s lives, such as â€œGrowing up in Gujaratâ€ (Gandhi ) and â€œActs of Defianceâ€ (Mandela). Numerous interesting photos and illustrations are included. Unfortunately, both books contain errors, such as incomplete Web site addresses in the â€œWorks Citedâ€ sections and incorrect quotes. Pretoria, where Gandhi lived for a year, is omitted from the map of South Africa, and the reason given for Mandelaâ€™s separation from his first wife is not the same as that given in his autobiography. For books on Gandhi, stick with John B. Severanceâ€™s Gandhi: Great Soul (Clarion, 1997). Most titles on Mandela for this audience arenâ€™t any better than this one. Ann W.
