Summary
"Gandhi was one of the few men in history to fight simultaneously on moral, religious, political, social, economic, and cultural fronts. Gandhi's life and thought has had an enormous impact both within and outside India, and he continues to be widely revered as one of the greatest moral and political leaders of the twentieth century." "In the Very Short Introduction to Gandhi's life and thought, Bhikhu Parekh cutlines both Gandhi's major philosophical insights and the limitations of his thought. He looks at Gandhi's spiritual view of politics, his unique form of liberal communitarianism, and his theories of oppression, non-violent action, and active citizenship. He also considers how the success of Gandhi's principles was limited by his lack of coherent theories of evil, and of state and power, and how his hostility to modern civilization impeded his appreciation of its complexity."--BOOK JACKET
