Mohandas K. Gandhi: The Last Eighteen Years
This volume is intended to complement Gandhi s Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth. Picking up the story after the events in the Autobiography, it begins with the Salt March in 1930, Gandhi s most well-known and successful nonviolent civil disobedience campaign, and ends with his last writings before his assassination in 1948. Using Gandhi s writings, as well as writings of associates, personal friends, and opponents, the book highlights major themes in Gandhi s life s work, including economic reform, nonviolent noncooperation, satyagraha, swaraj, Hindu-Muslim unity, eradication of oppressive treatment of untouchables, and the experience of God and faith.
