"The book entitled Politics of Life Writing: A Study of Gandhi’s Select English Biographies, examines the politics of narration in biography, a genre characterized by ideological clashes and contestations with both hegemonic and counter- hegemonic discourses opposing against each other. However, it becomes even more significant when versions of a single life circulate in society and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi as a subject is analyzed to identify some ideologically - motivated narrative techniques. Thrust is given to the politics of narration and this book argues that biography is a privileging genre with profound ideological leanings. A two-fold classification of Gandhi’s English biographies is made as a starting point – ‘making’ and ‘unmaking’ of the subject. In the case of the ‘making’ type of biographies, biographers’ agenda is to create a positive image of the subject and it may range from glorification to icon - making. On the other hand, the ‘unmaking’ biographers try to blast the image and it varies from vilification to outright debunking. "
