Arguably the most famous Indian of all time, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is also perhaps the most complex, and like Karl Marx, a practitioner, a theorist, and an activist, all at once. A writer himself, he has been the subject of much analysis, biographies, novels and plays, and counted among the most influential people in the world. In Postmodern Gandhi and other Essays: Gandhi in the World and at Home,Lloyd I. Rudolph and Susanne Hoeber Rudolph — stalwarts of political science — discuss Gandhi in the world and at home. The Rudolphs drove to India from London in 1956 in a Land Rover, and were deeply invested in the economics and politics of the Indian subcontinent. For theircontributions, they were awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2014. In a career spanning five decades, they taught as well as published work on Indian affairs, and were Professors Emeriti of Political Science at the University of Chicago.
