Abstract:

"Nonviolence for the Third Millennium provides insight into the past, present, and future of nonviolent theory and practice. It begins with a "family portrait" of Mohandas K. Gandhi, and includes a never-before-published journal of an American peacemaker's visit to Gandhi's ashram and the correspondence between Gandhi and Leo Tolstoy. These personal reactions lead to an exploration of the legacy of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. for the theory and practice of nonviolence. It is clearly-written and appropriate for undergraduates and senior high school students."--Jacket.
