This book closely examines different interpretations of Gandhi's view and ideas on myriad issues, and in doing so, it moves beyond existing scholarship. It focuses attention on issues of continuing relevance-tradition, modernity, nation, women, caste, race, religion and environment-thereby giving the book contemporary flavour. The leitmotif of the book promises and promotes a fruitful dialogue with creative and original thinker whose ideas and practices deserves far more than either adoration or dismissal. This comprehensive work on Gandhi provides an essential new reference for students and scholars of politics, history, philosophy as well as general readers, activist and admirers of Gandhi.
