This book presents a collection of essays. Among other things: (1) it tries to determine the nature of a social action and that of violent and non-violent actions; (2) it examines the claim of satyagraha as a non-violent method of action; (3) it deals with various violent and non-violent actions; and (4) it argues in favour of there being animal rights, and brings to light the view of Gandhi about the place of animals in his scheme of sarvodaya which is in keeping with what has been said here about animal rights.
