about

A short and fascinating treatise on love as the solution to all hatred, and the answer to all violence.

The subtitle of this work is: The Subjection of India - Its Cause and Cure, and consists of a letter to the editor of Free Hindustan. It was given to Gandhi, who was inspired to translate it from Russian, publish it in an Indian newspaper, and even write an introduction for it in book form.

The book manages to examine the political situation of the time (not so different from some parts of the world now) linking the basic tenet of many religions, including Taoism, Judaism, Mohammedanism and Christianity among others, to the philosophies of Ancient Greece and Rome.
Tolstoy saw the connecting thread as love.

Nicely written and inspiring. Also an interesting glimpse into the mind and motivation of a great writer...
