Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume focuses on Gandhi's vision of Satyagraha, whereby one appeals to reason and conscience and puts an end to evil by converting the evil-doer. The book begins with an explanation of Satyagraha and proceeds with detailed discussions of the self-training and courage necessary for Satyagraha.

Book News Annotation:

An unabridged republication of the edition published by Navijivan Trust, Amhedabad, in 1951 and Schocken Books in 1961. In 183 reprinted short articles and excerpts, Ghandi (1869-1948) sets out the principles of what has been his most influential contribution to religious and political thought. A philosophy of non-violence that led to independence for India and was embraced by the American civil rights movement, Satyagraha literally means holding on to the truth. Cited in .
