Economic reorganisation-a Gandhian perspective. 5. Gandhian approach to the contemporary political issues. 6. Global issues and Gandhian solutions. 7. Summary and conclusion. Select bibliography. Index. "Gandhi (1869-1948) held no political office. Yet he could arouse the conscience of an entire subcontinent! A lean, frail, 'half-naked fakir'- armed with a wooden staff and simple dignity of a human being, he fought against the greatest empire, the world has known. It was just the moral grandeur of his soul which enabled him to fight against brute power, in any form, even vanquish it. "Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this in flesh and blood walked upon this earth", said Professor Einstein of him. "A saint, social activist and political philosopher, unlike any other known in the twentieth century, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi held out a "message" which, based on "a series of his experiments with truth", touched upon every domain of human life: social, economic, moral/spiritual, cultural, political. Retrieving a range of these ideas from a variety of sources, this book tries afresh to gauge how far Gandhi and Gandhism are relevant in this dehumanized, fragmented world,perched dangerously on stockpiles of all-devastating arsenal; or in this age of distrust, moral decay and unbridled consumerism; or yet again when seen against today's aggressive/retaliatory attitudes. 263 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 48152

Sinopsis:

Gandhi (1869-1948) held no political office. Yet he could arouse the conscience of an entire subcontinent! A lean, frail, half-naked fakir- armed with a wooden staff and simple dignity of a human being, he fought against the greatest empire the world has known. It was just the moral grandeur of his soul which enabled him to fight against brute power in any form, even vanquish it. Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this in flesh and blood walked upon this earth, said Professor Einstein of him. A saint, social activist and political philosopher unlike any other known in the twentieth century, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi held out a message which, based on a series of his experiments with truth, touched upon every domain of human life: social, economic, moral/spiritual, cultural, political. Retrieving a range of these ideas from a variety of sources, this book tries afresh to gauge how far Gandhi and Gandhism are relevant in this dehumanized, fragmented world, perched dangerously on stockpiles of all-devastating arsenal; or in this age of distrust, moral decay and unbridled consumerism; or yet again when seen against today`s aggressive/retaliatory attitudes, or against the growing cult of violence. The book is not just a revalidation of Gandhian philosophy, but a reminder as well, suggesting how in his abiding solutions alone with their eloquent underpinnings of truth, non-violence and service of humanity, lies the hope for mankind in this conflict-ridden world.
