Description

This selection of Gandhi’s writings, taken from his letters, articles, and books, represents the complex cross-section of his thought, from his early years as a young barrister freshly called to the bar in London, to his final days as sage and counsel to newly independent India.
The collection not only reveals the growth of Gandhi’s ideas but also their essential internal integrity and consistency. It illustrates various facets of his personality—acerbic and melancholic, gentle and forcefully intellectual, ascetic mystic and man of action, humorous and intensely demanding of his followers. The common thread that runs through is the deep humanity of the man and his rich vein of genuine spirituality.
This book is essential reading for students and teachers of Indian history, politics, and sociology. It will also appeal to all those interested in learning more about Gandhi and his times.
