This book moves from the birth of Gandhi's method of nonviolent resistance in South Africa to an in-depth analysis of two of his signal triumphs: the civil disobedience movement of 1930 and his historic Calcutta fast of 1947. Dalton concluded with a comparison of Gandhi to Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.
