Overview

An intimate biography of one of the greatest social and
religious reformers of the modern world.

"Gandhi's work in nonviolence was comprehensive and not simply confined to politics or human rights. It was about building positive relationships based on respect, understanding, acceptance, and appreciation. It was about eliminating exploitation of all kinds and creating harmony."
—from the Foreword by Dr. Arun Gandhi, cofounder of the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence

Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948) was one of the most important and influential social and religious reformers of the past century, spending his life striving for justice, peace, and equality among countries, races, and classes. His ideas and ideals have inspired generations of activists—from Martin Luther King Jr. to Vaclav Havel—and acted as catalysts for change in every corner of the globe.

In this intimate biography, Charles ("Charlie") Andrews-Englishman, Anglican priest, and a close friend and colleague of Gandhi's in both South Africa and India-explores the life and times of this great soul, providing fascinating insight into the spiritual, political, and historical environment that affected Gandhi, playing key roles in the development of his thought and action.

Mahatma Gandhi: His Life and Ideas uses letters, personal reminiscences, and excerpts from Gandhi's many published and private writings to paint a vivid and accessible portrait of the personality and spirit of one of the most prominent figures in Indian—and world—history.

This updated edition showcases a new foreword about the continuing impact and importance of Gandhi's message today, written by Dr. Arun Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi's grandson and cofounder of the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence.
