Nonviolence in Action GANDHI'S POWER WITH A NEW PREFACE
Nonviolence in Action GANDHI'S POWER WITH A NEW PREFACE
Description
About the Book:

This insightful collection of essays on Gandhi's life and thought reinforces the belief that Gandhi's legacy remains relevant to a variety of cultural contexts, making him one of the most original political thinkers of the century. It focuses on the manner in which Gandhi forged a connection, in theory and in practice, among the ideas of freedom, nonviolent power, and civic responsibility. Dalton's new preface fills some of the earlier gaps by discussing Gandhi's conception of manual labour and his theory and practice of work, which pervaded his entire social reform programme.

About the Author:

Dennis Dalton is Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Political Sciences at Barnard College, Columbia University, NY, USA.

Excerpts from Reviews:

'What a refreshing study of Gandhi's political thought!…the best in recent years…This book presents an intellectually satisfying analysis of the Gandhian concepts of satyagraha and swaraj, of their interconnection, and of their application in his quest for Indian independence…Although admiring Gandhi, Dalton eschews his canonization for a clear, thoughtful study.'

-Library Journal

'Dalton has very wisely included what one seldom finds in books on Gandhi, examples of the trenchant criticism of his methods and ideas that were made by Indian contemporaries. His book is thus extraordinarily timely for an understanding of the redefinition of Indian nationalism that timely for an understanding of the redefinition of Indian nationalism that has been taking place in recent years.'

-Ainslie T. Embree
Professor Emeritus of History, Columbia University

'Dalton's book is thorough and original'

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
