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'
