"All my actions have their source in my inalienable love of humankind." -- Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi is one of the least understood figures of all time -- even among his admirers. In this Annual Gandhi Lecture for the International Association of Gandhian Studies, Mark Shepard tackles some persistently wrong-headed views of Gandhi, offering us a more accurate picture of the man and his nonviolence.
"A model of Gandhian journalism. . . . [Shepard] has put his finger on seemingly all of the popular (and some less common) misconceptions of both Gandhi and his philosophy, including some particularly important ones. . . . This book takes little space to cover its topic concisely and well. It would be [some] of the most valuable pages many people could read about Gandhi." -- Global Conscience, July-Sept. 1990
Mark Shepard is the author of "Mahatma Gandhi and His Myths," "The Community of the Ark," and "Gandhi Today," called by the American Library Association's Booklist "a masterpiece of committed reporting." His writings on social alternatives have appeared in over 30 publications in the United States, Canada, England, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Japan, and India.
I suspect that most of the myths and misconceptions surrounding Gandhi have to do with nonviolence. For instance, it's surprising how many people still have the idea that nonviolent action is passive.
It's important for us to be clear about this: There is nothing passive about Gandhian nonviolent action.
I'm afraid Gandhi himself helped create this confusion by referring to his method at first as "passive resistance," because it was in some ways like techniques bearing that label. But he soon changed his mind and rejected the term.
Gandhi's nonviolent action was not an evasive strategy nor a defensive one. Gandhi was always on the offensive. He believed in confronting his opponents aggressively, in such a way that they could not avoid dealing with him.
But wasn't Gandhi's nonviolent action designed to avoid violence? Yes and no. Gandhi steadfastly avoided violence toward his opponents. He did not avoid violence toward himself or his followers.
Gandhi said that the nonviolent activist, like any soldier, had to be ready to die for the cause. And in fact, during India's struggle for independence, hundreds of Indians were killed by the British.
The difference was that the nonviolent activist, while willing to die, was never willing to kill.
Gandhi pointed out three possible responses to oppression and injustice. One he described as the coward's way: to accept the wrong or run away from it. The second option was to stand and fight by force of arms. Gandhi said this was better than acceptance or running away.
But the third way, he said, was best of all and required the most courage: to stand and fight solely by nonviolent means.

Global Conscience, July-Sept. 1990 (referring to an earlier edition)

A model of Gandhian journalism... Would be [some] of the most valuable pages many people could read about Gandhi.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful and Enlightening 23 juillet 2005
Par Robert E. Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a short but powerful story that clears the air of many common misconceptions surrounding Mahatma Gandhi and Satyagraha. Even if you have done some prior study as I have about Gandhi, this book will still clarify many major areas of his work and give some insight into his own actions and works which seemingly run counter to his own professions of ideology. The mysteries are revealed in this jewel of a book.

it is a good book and for its size, 30 something pages of actual content, it is very enlightening and contains surprising amount of information in its small size. it is a must read for any and all Gandhi followers, critics, or anyone looking for information about his non-violent ways.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clearly on expert on Gandhi and nonviolent strategies 25 avril 2012

I wish Mark Shepard was still writting about Gandhi and Nonviolence. This is an older book but clearly speaks to what is important to understand about Gandhi's views on Nonviolence. The myths are in my estimation more about how nonviolence has been misinterpreted. Given that there are more Nonviolece trainings going on in our country than ever this year, his book should be on the top of list for everyone getting those trainings to read. And for those of us who are now researching everything we can get our hands on about nonviolent strategies- this is a great read!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Title is misleading. 12 octobre 2012
Par William Bopp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I guess you can't expect too much for the price, but this isn't an in depth history of Gandhi. It actually provides very little information about the complexity of Gandhi's personality. This is more of a short essay written in praise of Gandhi and no analytical understanding of the man.

An Okay book.It does not cover well enough.The author is trying touch topics very superficially.

The book will be worth reading for people with little knowledge on Gandhi
