Mahatma Gandhi, Nonviolent Liberator: A Biography
The story of Mohandas Gandhi, one of the world┬’s best-loved and most important promoters of freedom and justice, fascinates every generation. Thrown off a South African train for sitting in a ┬“whites only┬” compartment, Gandhi resolved to oppose injustice wherever he encountered it. His life of resistance led him to a remarkable philosophy of nonviolence that culminated in the freedom struggle in India. Part 2 of the book features a selection of quotations from Gandhi┬’s essential writings.
┬“Albert Einstein observed, ┬‘Generations to come ... will scarce believe that such a one as [Mohandas K. Gandhi] ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.┬’ Richard Deats┬’ account of Gandhi┬’s life and message could not be more timely. It is accessible, concise, and compelling. Read it.┬”

┬“Richard Deats┬’ analysis of Gandhi┬’s search for God and the value of nonviolence is very readable and insightful. Gandhi always believed one cannot find God without first understanding and living a nonviolent lifestyle. This book shows us the way to higher thinking and higher living.┬”
