Gandhi: The Story of My Experiments with Truth

by Mahatma Gandhi - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141032733 | ISBN 10: 0141032731

Mohandad Karamchand Gandhi was born in western India in 1869. He was educated in London and later travelled to South Africa, where he experienced racism and took up the rights of Indians, instituting his first campaign of passive resistance.
 
In 1915 he returned to British-controlled India, bringing to a country in the throes of independence his commitment to non-violent change, and his belief always in the power of truth. Under Gandhi's lead, millions of protestors would engage in mass campaigns of civil disobedience, seeking change through moral conversion of the colonizers.
 
For Gandhi, the long path towards Indian independence would lead to imprisonment and hardship, yet he never once forgot the principles of truth and non-violence so dear to him.
 
Written in the 1920s, Gandhi's autobiography tells not only of his struggles and inspirations but also speaks frankly of his failures. It is a powerful and enduring account of an extraordinary life.
