This book covers the important aspects of his life and the major components of his philosophy. Through an examination of Gandhi's life and legacy, particularly as a pioneer in the quest for justice and freedom through nonviolent means, this biography reveals lessons that inform our world--both present and future.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This work is very well-written, concise, and would work well for a world history course. Its chapters have significant links to major themes in world history that an instructor can use as 'teaching moments.' "

-Robert Bond, San DiegoMesa College

"A superb biography of Gandhi that follows his thoughts and actions and leaves us with good questions for how nonviolence might still be applicable in our day."

-Rick Warner, WabashCollege

"This book has the potential to respond to many of the challenges faced by my students. The subject is inherently interesting, and the narrative of Gandhi's life connects to many significant themes of twentieth-century world history."

-Gregory Crider, WinthropUniversity
