Not yet rated | write a review

Mohandas K Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century.

Gandhi was 56 when the book appeared and he lived what he preached for another 23 years, through triumph and tragedy. As every reader will discover, his autobiography is not the usual conventional narrative. It is a reflection, a confession and above all, a critical self-examination of himself and his ideas. Gandhi remains and will remain a visionary for all times.
