|Mohandas K. Gandhi. Sissela Bok, foreword.|
|Pages/Publication Date:||560 / 1993|
The life of Mahatma Gandhi has given fire and fiber to freedom fighters and to the untouchables of the world, and he wrote, "I should certainly like to narrate my experiments in the spiritual field which are known only to myself, and from which I have derived such power as I possess for working in the political field." His classic autobiography encompasses his boyhood in Gujarat, marriage at age 13, legal studies in England, and the growing desire for purity and reform that led him to vegetarianism, celibacy, and a policy of nonviolence that would make him a hero to millions.
