Publisher Comments:

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) was a major political and spiritual leader of India and the Indian independence movement. In India, he is recognized as the Father of the Nation. A British-educated lawyer, Gandhi first employed his ideas of peaceful civil disobedience in the Indian communitys struggle for civil rights in South Africa. Upon his return to India, he led nationwide campaigns for the alleviation of poverty, for the liberation of women, for brotherhood amongst differing religions and ethnicities, for an end to untouchability and caste discrimination, and for the economic self-sufficiency of the nation, but above all for Swaraj-the independence of India from foreign domination. He famously led Indians in the disobedience of the salt tax on the 400 kilometre (248 miles) Dandi Salt March in 1930, and in an open call for the British to Quit India in 1942. He was imprisoned for many years on numerous occasions in both South Africa and India. He dedicated his life to the wider purpose of discovering truth, or Satya. He tried to achieve this by learning from his own mistakes and conducting experiments on himself. He called his autobiography The Story of My Experiments with Truth.

WisdomSeeker, July 16, 2013 (view all comments by WisdomSeeker)
I always like to read the earliest possible Edition of a Book, later Editions are always Modified, and changed. So it is, with this one. This book, written in the same style as Plato's "The Republic" with Gandhi being the "Editor," and the Disciple (Adeimantous), being the "Reader," allows Gandhi to Express many of his Views on a Variety of National, International, and Personal Matters;. Gandhi Exhibits an Extraordinarily Keen Level of Awareness in a variety of Areas, from Personal to Political, to Sociological, to Dietary. In this very short Volume, one gets to know WHO Mohandas K. Gandhi truly Was; What he Stood For, and Why, and then some. One may also get a glimpse of why the Man eventually came to be known both as the Conscience of India, and given the title "Mahatma" (Great Soul). Though Written in the same Style, as Plato's famous book, "Hind Swaraj," or "Indian Home Rule," is a much easier read than Plato's "Republic" ;), and an Essential Read for anyone hoping to understand Gandhi. Highly Recommended.
