READING: Dr Brown presents a political study of the first clearly defined period in Mahatma Gandhi's Indian career, from 1915 to 1922. The period began with Gandhi's return from South Africa as a stranger to Indian politics, witnessed his dramatic assertion of leadership in the Indian National Congress of 1920 and ended with his imprisonment by the British after the collapse of his all-India civil disobedience movement against the raj. Focusing on Gandhi, this book nevertheless investigates the changing nature of Indian politics. It aims to study precisely what Gandhi did, on whom he relied for support, how he interacted with other nationalist leaders and how he saw his own role in Indian public life. Unlike the usual interpretation of Gandhi's rise to power as based on a charismatic appeal to the Indian masses, this study argues that his influence depended on a capacity to generate a network of lesser leaders, or subcontractors, who would organise their constituencies for him, whether these were caste, communal or economic groups or whole areas.

READING: Samen met Nelson Mandela en Martin Luther King is Mahatma Gandhi een van de meest inspirerende iconen uit onze geschiedenis. Hij is onlosmakelijk verbonden met het geweldloze verzet en werd na zijn gewelddadige dood een martelaar voor de mensenrechten.In deze geïllustreerde biografie gaat de Indiase auteur en Gandhi-kenner Pramod Kapoor op zoek naar de mens achter het icoon. Hij doet dat onder andere aan de hand van uniek beeldmateriaal en een authentieke, ontluisterende brief van Gandhi's zoon Harilal. Zo komt de complexe, ambigue persoonlijkheid van Mahatma Gandhi naar voren: de man die van onbekende advocaat uitgroeide tot de wereldberoemde voorvechter van mensenrechten, maar een immense druk legde op zijn naasten.

READING: For a man who made such a powerful intervention in the history of the 20th century, many of Mahatma Gandhi’s ideas were misunderstood or obfuscated during his lifetime. This book draws our attention to Gandhi’s last years, particularly the marked change in his understanding of the acceptance of non-violence by Indians. It points to a startling discovery Gandhi made in the years preceding India’s Independence and Partition: the struggle for freedom which he had all along believed to be non-violent was in fact not so. He realised that there was a causal relationship between the path of illusory ahimsa which had held sway during the freedom struggle and the violence that erupted thereafter during Partition. Calling for a serious rethink on the very nature and foundation of modern India, this book throws new light on Gandhian philosophy and its far-reaching implications for the world today. It will interest not only scholars and researchers of modern Indian history, politics, and philosophy but also lay readers.

READING: A childhood biography of the great political and social leader. Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948) studied law in England, then spent 20 years defending the rights of immigrants in South Africa. In 1914 he returned to India and became the leader of the Indian National Congress. Gandhi urged non-violence and civil disobedience as a means to independence from Great Britain, with public acts of defiance that landed him in jail several times. In 1947 he participated in the postwar negotiations that led to Indian independence. He was shot to death by a Hindu fanatic in 1948. This childhood biography highlights the events that informed Gandhi's indomitable spirit.

In this volume, seven leading Gandhi scholars write on these four meanings, engaging the reader in the ongoing debates in the East and the West and contributing to a new comparative political theory.
