Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gandhi's Way provides a primer of Mahatma Gandhis principles of moral action and conflict resolution. It offers a straightforward, step-by-step approach that can be used in any conflict—at home or in business; in local, national, or international arenas. Juergensmeyer sets out Gandhis basic methods and illustrates them with practical examples to show how parties at odds can rise above a narrow view of self-interest to find resolutions that are satisfying and beneficial to all involved. The author pits Gandhis ideas against those of other great social thinkers in a series of imaginary debates that challenge and clarify Gandhis thinking on issues of violence, anger, and love. He also provides a Gandhian critique of Gandhi himself, and offers viable solutions to some of the gaps in Gandhian theory.

Gandhis Way: A Handbook of Conflict Resolution was previously published as Fighting with Gandhi and Fighting Fair.

Synopsis:

A primer for Ghandi's principles of moral action and conflict resolution.

Synopsis:

“A fascinating, thought-provoking, helpful and heartening book.”—Los Angeles Times

“Juergensmeyers book is something of a Gandhian tour de force — a careful analysis and series of applications of Gandhis concepts of satyagraha … to everyday situations with which most Western readers are familiar.”—Religious Studies Review

“This is a manual of instruction in the best sense: a popular reassessment of the activist use of satyagraha in conflict resolution that has depth and a true appreciation for the ethical subtleties of dialectical struggles, and for the multiple dimensions of ‘passive resistance.”—Library Journal
