Mahatma Gandhi, a nonviolent perspective on peace, Ramin Jahanbegloo

"This book maps the genesis and development of Gandhi's idea of non-violence. It traces the evolution of the message of peace from its first expressions in South Africa to Gandhi's later campaigns against British rule in India, most prominently the Salt March campaign of 1930. It argues that Gandhi's blueprint for change must be adopted in the present, as the world craters on the precipice of catastrophic climate change, and the threat of nuclear war hangs over our heads. A timely book for uncertain times, this work is a reminder of the value of peace in the 21st century. It will be of great interest to general readers as well as scholars and researchers of peace and conflict studies, politics, philosophy, history, and South Asian studies"--, Provided by publisher
