Publisher Comments:

With over 100,000 copies sold, a new hardcover edition, published to coincide with the "Global 2008 Gandhi Tour" and the 60th anniversary of his death—the inspirational and powerful words of Gandhi chosen by the award-winning director.

Drawn from Gandhi's letters, speeches, and writings, here are his ideas, 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 Gandhi explores the prophet's timeless thoughts on: Daily Life, Cooperation, Nonviolence, Faith, and Peace.

This new commemorative hardcover edition of the bestselling classic includes:

• An introduction by Richard Attenborough

• 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

• 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.

"His words struck me so forcibly that there and then I committed myself to an attempt to make a film about Mahatma Gandhi—a commitment that changed the subsequent twenty years of my life....I hope this book, The Words of Gandhi, will offer an introduction to the Mahatma's ideas and philosophies."—Sir Richard Attenborough, in his Introduction

"I have done nothing new to teach the world. Truth and nonviolence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could....[N]o elaborate literature or propaganda is needed....Those who believe in the simple truths I have laid down can propagate them only by living them."—Mahatma Gandhi
