This volume focuses on Gandhi’s vision of Satyagraha, whereby one appeals to reason and conscience and puts an end to evil by converting the evil-doer. The book begins with an explanation of Satyagraha and proceeds with detailed discussions of self-training and courage necessary for Satyagraha; the use and effectiveness of such techniques as nonpayment of fines and taxes, social boycotts, fasting, sympathetic strikes, and other forms of noncooperation; and many other topics.
