Abstract:

Mother Teresa of Calcutta - few figures in the twentieth century have received such adulation. This diminutive nun of Albanian descent was frequently cited as the living embodiment of Christian kindness. Recipient of numerous humanitarian awards, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, she was hailed as a living saint and commanded unrivaled international attention. Yet the respect she received was not unanimous, and since 1990, serious, measured criticisms have been directed at this modern icon, who seemed beyond reproach.

In this riveting book, Anne Sebba gives us the first unbiased and balanced account of Mother Teresa's life and work. It is the first to put her in a social, historical, and geographic context, and the first to assess the future for the four thousand nuns in her worldwide Order.
