    One thought on “Selected Political Writings”

    1. The Mahatma's collected works run to about 100 volumes. Having never read them (obviously) I can't address whether this slim volume is a good sampling. I can say, however, that Gandhi's writing style is wonderful. Clear and powerful, but also very personal and compelling. The book is divided into two sections. The first contains writings related to satyagraha or nonviolent resistance. The second is devoted to swaraj: freedom or self-rule.Recommended.

    2. I read this book along with Ronald Tercheck's "Gandhi: Struggle for Autonomy". Tercheck was my professor at the University of Maryland and he has done the legwork for the layman reader by sifting through the many writings of Gandhi to find the patterns and the many challenges that lead to the writings. To the western reader the notion of spinning our own clothes may seem outdated and even backwards but when we educate ourselves as to what was happening in India at that time the idea doesn't seem [...]

    3. A very good book. Very easy to read, and it clearly explains some key and surprisingly (subtle) notions in Gandhi's political thought and rationales undergirding his civil disobedience. Before reading this book, I both (1)thought that Gandhi's thought was politically unsophisticated, and (2)that (1) was almost certainly incorrect. This book confirmed that Gandhi's thought is quite nuanced and much more defensible than I expected. I have thought at various times "Oh! This reminds me of what Rawls [...]

    4. Rarely have I read such a clear philosophical treatise on the unity of "swaraj" (freedom, independence, liberation) as necessarily both a political and a personal / spiritual agenda -- what I call, "working on the self, working on the world." The main ingredients of satyagraha are (1) a shared perception of an extreme injustice, (2) a shared conviction that civil disobedience offers a remedy, and (3) a community's willingness to overcome fear and recover self-respect through collective, nonviole [...]
