    SMES IR book review 2008 (Mrs. Korzep)

    Gandhi¿s Passion: The Life and Legacy of Mahatma Gandhi<BR/>Stanley Wolpert<BR/>Professor of History of Emeritus at the University of California, Los Angeles<BR/>Written many books about modern India and Pakistan<BR/>One-sided point of view on how Gandhi is a man to be idolized<BR/>Nonfictional biography<BR/>Pacifism, independence<BR/>If the people of Russia and Georgia were to use Gandhi¿s example of nonviolent reasoning, there would be no need for Russia to have to make a decision on whether to keep their troops in Georgia or take them out. If they were using a pacifistic view of things than their fight for oil would be solved. They could use rational persuasion to fairly figure out their issue and make both countries happy. Martin Luther King Jr. was a huge follower of Gandhi¿s ways, he once said, ¿Operating through the Gandhian method of non-violence is one of the most potent weapons available to the oppressed people in their struggle for freedom¿ (264). The few criticisms I was able to find about this book were both good. Wolpert did a very good job of writing this book. Even though he thought very highly of Gandhi, he kept this book strictly facts few opinions. He had a lot of detail that helped us to have a further understanding of Gandhi and his life, and he did this with a very open-mind. Not only did Wolpert write this book very well, he wrote the book from a point of view that anyone could respect. He did not just write a book about how he thought of Gandhi; he wrote a biography on Mahatma Gandhi¿s life. This book is a very good book for any history teacher to use as a reference. It is very educational and not so much a fun read. I would recommend this book if you are writing a research paper because it will give you all the information you are looking for not just a few small facts that could be of very little help.
