Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gandhi's ideas are as meaningful today as they were during his long and inspiring life. His enlightening thoughts and beliefs, especially on violence and the atomic bomb, reveal his eloquent foresight about our contemporary world. The words of one of the greatest men of the twentieth century, chosen by the award-winning director Richard Attenborough from Gandhi's letters, speeches, and published writings, explore the prophet's timeless thoughts on daily life, cooperation, nonviolence, faith, and peace.

This bestselling volume includes an introduction by Attenborough and an afterword by Time magazine Senior Foreign Correspondent Johanna McGeary that places Gandhi's life and work in the historical context of the twentieth century. This book and the film Gandhi were the result of producer/director Richard Attenborough's long commitment to keeping alive the flame of Gandhi's spiritual achievement and the wisdom of his actions and his words. They are the wisdom and words of peace. Also included are twenty striking historical photographs, specially selected from the archives at the National Gandhi Museum in New Delhi, that capture the important personal, political, and spiritual aspects of Gandhi's career.

Synopsis:

"The only tyrant I'll accept in this world is the 'still, small voice' within."

"Democracy, disciplined and enlightened, is the finest thing in the world."

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will."

This 21st-century expanded edition of this inspiring collection reaffirms the message of the great spiritual leader, whose life was dramatized so brilliantly in Attenborough's movie Gandhi, and who was Time magazine's "Man of the Century" runner-up (to Albert Einstein).

This expanded edition brings to a new readership more than 150 excerpts of the great spiritual leader's letters, speeches, and writings from more than four decades on daily life, cooperation, nonviolence, peace, and faith. With selections and a preface by the award-winning director of Gandhi, the book now also includes an introduction by Johanna McGeary, Time's Senior Foreign Correspondent (who wrote the essay on Gandhi for Time's century-end issue), placing Gandhi's life and work in the historical context of the 20th century.

"Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress, Gandhi is inescapable. He lived, thought and acted, inspired by the vision of humanity evolving toward a world of peace and harmony. We may ignore him at our own risk."—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
