Reviews
Review Quotes
"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 Diego Mesa 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, Wabash College "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, Winthrop University
