Description

This book examines the intellectual and cultural values, and the events, particularly the Second World War, which shaped Gandhi's distinctive political, economic and social ideals, especially his philosophy of non-violence.

Mahatma Gandhi was one of the outstanding moral and political figures of the twentieth century. This book assesses his life and career, from his education in India and England, through his years in South Africa as a young lawyer and emergence as leader of the Indian minority there, to his return to India and central role in the struggle against the Raj. Antony Copley examines the intellectual and cultural values, and the events, particularly the Second World War, which shaped Gandhi’s distinctive political, economic and social ideals, especially his philosophy of non-violence. He concludes by considering the legacy of Gandhi’s thinking both within the beyond India.
