The book revisits Gandhi in this era of turbulence.
As rigidly held notions and practices fall to pieces, and as mechanisms of violence and politicking fail, Gandhi comes to picture.
If Gandhi could change the course of history, there must be elements in his thought and action, which need re-examination for the benefit of human society.
This collection of essays seeks to address the question: Is it possible to generate Gandhian optimism and faith in truth and nonviolence in the contemporary world?
It argues that there is a need for sustained efforts to make an in-depth study of Gandhian principles to address global problems.
The book is a useful addition to the literature in political science and international relations, economics, history, sociology, conflict and peace studies, and a guide for the advocates of peaceful means of conflict resolution.
