Editorial Reviews

'... a judicious mix of excerpts from Gandhi's letters, articles, and books which come together to provide a useful introduction to his political theory. The selected passages, together with Iyer's introduction, present a definitive picture of Gandhi. ... the organisation of the materialmakes the book easy to use without totally neglecting significant historical details. ... political theorists seeking a broad understanding of the way Gandhi perceived the world will find this selection more that adequate to their needs. Certainly, this is the best single-volume selectin known tome.'Mark Bevir. University of Newcastle upon Tyne. The Journal of Commonwealth and Comparative Politics
