Debating Gandhi A Reader
Debating Gandhi A Reader
Description
From the Jacket

Gandhi continues to be a subject of enduring interest for students, scholars, and general readers across the world. In the nearly six decades since his death, a large and diverse range of writing-comparative, expository, dialogical, and biographical-has appeared on Gandhi. This volume puts together different interpretations of the Mahatma's views on myriad issues and, in doing so, it travels beyond existing scholarship.

Presenting contesting positions of renowned scholars on issues critical for understanding Gandhi as a thinker and a historical phenomenon, these essays sweep a wide canvas. Differing views on the impact of traditional ideas and western influences on Gandhi; is negotiations with modernity; his views on modern science and influence over contemporary environmental movements; his idea of truth; his views on women and whether they broke from the thinking of the nineteenth century reformers; and his complex intellectual relationship with the other great champion of India's oppressed classes, Babasaheb Ambedkar, are all discussed in some detail.

The essays focus attention on issues of continuing relevance-tradition, modernity, nation, women, and caste-thereby giving the volume a contemporary flavour. The juxtaposition of standpoints for debates- the leitmotif of the volume-promotes a fruitful preoccupation with an original thinker whose ideas and practices deserve far more than either adoration or dismissal.

This Gandhi reader will interest students and scholars of politics, history, philosophy as well as general readers and admirers of Gandhi.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
