In the Footsteps of Gandhi is a collection of original and soul-searching interviews with contemporary spiritual social activists. Whether discussing AIDS, apartheid, or the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, they embody the understanding that violence is not stopped by violence; violence is only ended by love.
This revised edition features a new foreword by Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and author of Legacy of Love, an afterword by American book Award winner Michael Nagler; and a new introduction by the author.

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.
