Westerners may certainly have heard about Gandhi’s name. Whether they understand the origin of his believes and their numerous concrete applications is not as obvious. This book, published by the UNESCO, is a compilation of Gandhi’s writings and speeches, organized in themes. The reader can learn more about the man he was, his life, his believes and fears, so as to profit from his timeless and enlightening viewpoint about burning political and social issues.
