PRAISE FOR GANDHI STRUGGLING FOR AUTONOMY

Ronald Terckek’s Republican Paradoxes was a timely retrieval of a neglected strand in Western political theory. His present book, Gandhi, almost compels us to redo a good deal of our politics and our political theory in terms of Gandhi’s distinctive idea of the integrity and worth of everyone.
-Thomas Pantham, Professor, University of Baroda, and Mahatma Gandhi National Fellow (ICSSR)

An important and original contribution to the study of one of the twentieth century’s truly great figures. Terchek’s sophisticated interpretative strategies make Gandhi easily accessible to readers of the twenty-first century.
-Anthony Parel, Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Calgary

A seminal analysis of Gandhi the Thinker… Eminently succeeds in making Gandhi relevant for the next century.
-Naresh Dhadhich, Professor and Director of the Center for Gandhian Studies, University of Rajasthan
