Title: An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth

Mohandas K. Gandhi is One of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of satyagraha, or active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century.

In a new foreword, peace expert and teacher Sissela Bok urges us to adopt Gandhi's "attitude of experimenting. Of testing what will and will not bear close scrutiny, what can and cannot be adapted to new circumstances," in order to bring about change in our own lives and communities.

Title: Gandhi the Man: How One Man Changed Himself to Change the World

Gandhi’s life is both inspiring and baffling to modern readers. How did an ineffective young lawyer become the Mahatma, who led 400 million Indians in their nonviolent struggle for independence? How did he endure the terrible hardships ? joyfully, and with love for all? And how exactly does nonviolence work?

Easwaran grew up in Gandhi’s India and gives authentic answers to these questions.
This biography, illustrated with 70 photographs, and supported by background notes, a chronology, and quotes from Gandhi’s writings, offers a moving account of the turning points and choices in Gandhi’s life that made him both a great leader and an icon of the power of nonviolence.

On a visit to his ashram, Easwaran watched the Mahatma meditating on the Bhagavad Gita, the source of his inspiration and personal strength. This book conveys the spirit and soul of Gandhi ? the only way he can be truly understood.

Title: Gandhi

Few individuals have made so great a mark upon their times, and yet Gandhi never held high political office, commanded no armies and was not even a compelling orator. How then can his power be explained? How and why did the shy student and affluent lawyer come to challenge a Western empire?

David Arnold¿s fascinating profile tracks ¿Mahatma¿ Gandhi¿s influence and image over more than forty years of public life:

  • the struggle for the rights of Indians in South Africa which pitched him against white racism
  • Gandhi¿s techniques of non-cooperation and civil disobedience to drive out the British and wrest India's freedom
  • his ascendancy over the British, the Salt March of 1930, his unique appeal as both Hindu saint and ordinary colonial subject
  • why India¿s independence in 1947, and violent partition, was not the freedom for which Gandhi had struggled
  • Gandhi¿s bitter disillusionment before his assassination in January 1948

In leading India to independence, Gandhi also contributed uniquely to British political life and to the eventual dissolution of a worldwide Empire. This is a vivid introduction to his life and times.

DAVID ARNOLD is Professor of South Asian History at the School of Oriental and African Studies in the University of London.
