Based on the complete edition of his works, this new volume presents Gandhi's most important political writings arranged around the two central themes of his political teachings: satyagraha (the power of non-violence) and swaraji (freedom). Dennis Dalton's general introduction and headnotes highlight the life of Gandhi, set the readings in hisorical context, and provide insight into the conceptual framework of Gandhi's political theory.
