Overview

In the spring of 2003 there was a worldwide demonstration for nonviolence that was the largest in history.

A growing number of people are studying the works of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and other nonviolent leaders as the world collectively seeks to abandon the use of weapons in resolving conflict. At a time when eloquent and inspiring voices for peace are relevant more than ever, In the Footsteps of Gandhi, profiles contemporary leaders in this struggle. Here are people whose positive work has been part of international news for decades—in topics ranging from AIDS, to apartheid, to the Israeli-Palestine conflict—all of whom embody the understanding that violence is not stopped by violence. Violence is only ended by love.

This revised edition of Catherine Ingram's book features interviews with Mubarak Awad, Ram Dass, Thich Nhat Hanh, Cesar Chavez, H.H. The Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Joan Baez, and others.

Catherine Ingram's beautifully constructed book presents interviews of spiritual social activists that serve both as a historical record and, in our current world climate, an inspiring reminder that it is important to take action in line with our beliefs and principles, and that the word 'spiritual' can include engaging oneself in crucial social and political issues that affect us all.
