Abstract:

The gathering storm of new social forces and aspirations in America today has turned fresh attention to Gandhi's ideas on non-violence. That Gandhi draws in part on Emerson and Thoreau gives him a further relevance to the American scene. But the system of passive resistance which he pioneered is broad in its application and manysided in form. The self-training which he describes in these pages has welded inert groups into powerful social movements. Gandhi himself does not claim finality for his methods; he traces their evolution as they were applied in successive situations. But his teachings and experience, told here in his own words, are invaluable for all future students and participants in the struggle for social reform.
