Summary "[The book] takes readers from his privileged early childhood to the studies and travel that would introduce him to peace activists around the world, [including the United States]--eventually putting this gentle, scholarly pacifist on a deadly course to assassinate one of the most ruthless dictators in history. It provides insights into what makes someone stand up for whats right when no one else is standing with you. It is a question that every generation must answer again and again."-- Jacket.
