This chapter examines Alexander's support for Gandhi's leadership of the Indian national movement, discussing the Nehru Report, which was named after its author, Motilal Nehru. Alexander believed that the document presented a very enlightened approach to the communal problem. The chapter discusses Rabindranath Tagore's arrival in Britain to conduct the Hibbert Lectures in Oxford, and Alexander's travels to India in order to solve the tensions in India. It also discusses the Round Table Conference and the India Conciliation Group, which aimed to develop a gradual process of constitutional reform.
