This anthology of Gandhi's writings offers a revealing look at his life and philosophy, focusing on subjects of enduring interest — rather than day-to-day political matters — and the development of the philosophy of Satyagraha — defense of and by the truth. This collection also features significant excerpts from the Mahatma's speeches, correspondence, and diaries.
