Throughout his long and turbulent career as a political leader, first in South Africa and then in India, Gandhi sought to fulfil his religious aspirations through politics and to reconcile politics with personal religious conviction. But Gandhi's religion was wildly divergent from anything to have taken root in his native India. Foremost among his private tenets was the belief that he was a world saviour, long prophesied and potentially divine. Penetrating and provocative, Kathryn Tidrick's book draws on neglected material to explore the paradoxes within Gandhi's life and personality. She reveals a man whose spiritual ideas originated not in India, but in the drawing rooms of late-Victorian England, and which included some very eccentric and damaging notions about sex. The resulting portrait is complex, convincing and, to anyone interested in the legacy of colonialism, more enlightening than any previously published. The Gandhi revealed here is not the secular saint of popular renown, but a difficult and self-obsessed man driven by a messianic sense of personal destiny. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Recalling his friendship and conversations with the late Indian leader, William Shirer presents a portrait of Gandhi that spotlights his frailties as well as his accomplishments. As a young foreign correspondent, William Shirer reported briefly on Gandhibut the year was 1931, when India's struggle for independence peaked and Gandhi scored perhaps his greatest political success. The year before, he had led a 200-mile march to the sea to pick up a lump of salta violation of the British salt tax; and this symbolic act (likehe reminds Shirerthe Boston Tea Party) had propelled the Indian masses into nonviolent civil disobedience on a large scale. To check its spread, Gandhi had been arbitrarily imprisoned. Now he was out of prison and negotiating with the British viceroy: if Gandhi would call off the civil-disobedience campaign and attend an upcoming London conference, the British would make concessions too. These, however, were so limited and vague that many Indian nationalists regarded Gandhi's agreement as a sell-out; but Shirer underlines history's judgment of its wisdom with Gandhi's own words. More importantly, he notes, the British had finally been forced "to deal with an Indian leader as an equal." Along these lines, Shirer also witnessed British discomfiture at Gandhi's arrivalcomplete with loin cloth, spinning wheel, and goat's milk; he saw the sensation Gandhi caused in Londonand heard him address Lancashire millhands thrown out of work by the Indian boycott of British cotton. And he saw him at home, subsisting on four-hours' sleep and "frenzied acclaim." This book is sure to press upon readers the worldwide force of Gandhi's example. Kirkus Reviews

This book is not just another biography of Gandhi. It is valuable because it offers us a French view--- and Jewish too perhaps---- of a man and times so familiar to us and yet which acquires another dimension as it is represented through another culture. There are eloquent accounts in this book of philosophers like Ramakrishna and Vivekananda who influenced Gandhi's thought and life. Rather than political events, Michal de Saint-Chron holds up the force and courage of a man who became a prophet in a blood-thirsty century. Interestingly, the author points out that it is only India and the Middle East which has given the world the two mother religions of Hinduism and Judaism. Neither China nor Europe, two major cultures, have produced a world religion. The book is further enriched by a discussion on Hindu mysticism and the concept of love' in Judaism. The author also looks at how Gandhi has played a major role on shaping French intellectuals such as Andre Malraux. At the end however, a central dilemma, and a painful one to the work, concerns Gandhi's silence on the Holocaust. This book will be of interest to scholars working on Gandhian studies, Indian philosophy and Judaism, and to readers of politics, ethics and history.

A childhood biography of the great political and social leader. Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948) studied law in England, then spent 20 years defending the rights of immigrants in South Africa. In 1914 he returned to India and became the leader of the Indian National Congress. Gandhi urged non-violence and civil disobedience as a means to independence from Great Britain, with public acts of defiance that landed him in jail several times. In 1947 he participated in the postwar negotiations that led to Indian independence. He was shot to death by a Hindu fanatic in 1948. This childhood biography highlights the events that informed Gandhi's indomitable spirit.

My struggle is not merely political. It is religious and therefore quite pure.'How did Gandhi reconcile his political career with his religious beliefs? Why was he so revered by so many in his lifetime and ever since? And what gave him such belief in his own destiny to liberate his country and change the world? This fresh and original interpretation of one of the twentieth century's most extraordinary personalities shows for the first time how Gandhi's religious beliefs, political career and personal behaviour form a coherent whole. Tidrick revealingly examines Gandhi's ideas about the relationship between sexual control and power, and the bizarre and scandalous behaviour that resulted, and explores his interest in new religious and philosophical thinking. Drawing on material neglected by earlier biographers, the portrait which emerges does not show the secular saint of popular myth but a difficult and self-obsessed man driven to pursue the world-changing destiny he believed was marked out for him.This is a book primarily about Gandhi's ideas, where they came from and how he put them to work in his own life and in the Indian nationalist movement. Its novelty lies in the great attention which is paid to the late Victorian experiment with new ideas - for instance, vegetarianism, theosophy and non-violence which, with Gandhi's own distinctive understanding of Hinduism as a faith of social action, went to give his life and his politics such a remarkable form' Francis Robinson, Professor of the History of South Asia, Royal Holloway, University of LondonShows considerable knowledge and understanding of the political and social context of Gandhi's evolving thought. The portrait of Gandhi is a broadly sympathetic one, but it is certainly not uncritical, bringing out some of the contradictions in his stance on non-violence and communal relations, criticising his treatment of his wife and exposing some of his bizarre attitudes to sex' David Omissi, Senior Lecturer in Imperial History, University of Hull

Saviez-vous que celui qui prnait un oecumnisme bienveillant se fcha avec l'an de ses fils lorsque ce dernier se convertit l'islam ? Saviez-vous que Gandhi crivit les plus belles pages de son oeuvre dans le Kraal, une maison btie par l'homme qui partageait sa vie, et qu'on appelait le bodybuilder juif ? Saviez-vous que Gandhi envoya au dbut de la Seconde Guerre mondiale deux lettres Hitler, commenant par Cher ami , pour lui demander (un peu navement) de rappeler ses troupes, et d'opter pour la non-coopration non violente ? Surtout : sur les chemins de la Grande Guerre, dans laquelle 1 700 000 Indiens ont t engags, saviez-vous que le Mahatma Gandhi, chantre de la non-violence, soutint alors les autorits anglaises, en suggrant de mobiliser les Indiens de l'Empire britannique ? Gilles Van Grasdorff rouvre avec intelligence ces dossiers d'une extrme sensibilit. Ce livre troublant est aussi l'occasion d'analyser l'attitude de Gandhi envers l'Allemagne nazie, et d'voquer les raisons pour lesquelles le III e Reich fit de la Bhagavad-gita un de ses livres de chevet.

Rethinking Gandhi and Nonviolent Relationality
This book presents a rethinking of the world legacy of Mahatma Gandhi in this era of unspeakable global violence. Through interdisciplinary research, key Gandhian concepts are revisited by tracing their genealogies in multiple histories of world contact and by foregrounding their relevance to contemporary struggles to regain the humane' in the midst of global conflict. The relevance of Gandhian notions of ahimsa and satyagraha is assessed in the context of contemporary events, when religious fundamentalisms of various kinds are competing with the arrogance and unilateralism of imperial capital to reduce the world to a state of international lawlessness. Covering a wide and comprehensive range of topics such as Gandhi's vegetarianism and medical practice, his successes and failures as a litigator in South Africa, his experiments with communal living and his concepts of non-violence and satyagraha. The book combines historical, philosophical, and textual readings of different aspects of the leader's life and works. Rethinking Gandhi in a New World Order will be of interest to students and academics interested in peace and conflict studies, South Asian history, world history, postcolonial studies, and studies on Gandhi.
