Description:

Featuring a new preface by the author, this book moves from the birth of Gandhi's method of nonviolent resistance in South Africa to an in-depth analysis of two of his signal triumphs: the civil disobedience movement of 1930 and his historic Calcutta fast of 1947. By focusing on these critical years, Dalton makes it clear that political leadership and a lifelong career in national politics gave Gandhi an opportunity to develop and refine his ideas and to test and perfect his ideals. The book concludes with a comparison of Gandhi to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, confirming Gandhi's relevance to the study of race and political leadership in America.
