Bhikhu Parekh is Professor Emeritus of Political Theory at the University of Hull (England). His publications include Gandhi's Political Philosophy, Crisis and Change in Contemporary India, The Decolonization of Imagination, and Critical Assessments of Jeremy Betham.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) was one of the few men in history to fight simultaneously on moral, religious, political, social, economic, and cultural fronts. During his time as a lawyer in South Africa he developed his strategy of non-violence: the idea of opposing unjust laws by non-violent protest. He led the Indian National Congress party in three major campaigns against British rule, each culminating in his arrest. In Gandhi, a short introduction to Gandhis life and thought, Bhikhu Parekh outlines both Gandhis major philosophical insights and the limitations of his thought. Written with extensive access to Gandhis writings in Indian languages to which most commentators have little or no access, Parekh looks at Gandhis cosmocentric anthropology, his spiritual view of politics, and his theories of oppression, non-violent action, and active citizenship. He also considers how the success of Gandhis principles were limited by his lack of coherent theories of evil, and of state and power. Gandhis view of man as ascetic allows no room for expressions of the cultural, artistic, or intellectual. Furthermore, he was so hostile to modern civilization that he was unable to appreciate its complex dialectic or offer a meaningful narrative. Nevertheless, Gandhis life and thought had an enormous impact on the Indian nation, and he continues to be widely revered--known before and after his assassination as Mahatma, the Great Soul.

This book is an illustrative introduction to the life, ideas and influence of Gandhi. Parekh's analysis is balanced, objective and well substantiated by Gandhi's own writings. A solid work for those interested in the Indian political figure.
Bad Sunny
This was one of the best Very Short Introductions I've read. The author did an excellent job distilling Gandhis life and philosophy to around 140 pages. I discovered that I need to read more books about or by Gandhi. I agree with approximately 75% of his political and "spiritual" views. His views on human dignity, non-violence, non-compulsion, and the importance of agency all strike a chord with me.
Kajishakar
It's a very short introduction to Gandhi. Not knowing much about the man I think this book did a good job of teaching the basics.
Gajurus
This book provides a great overview of Ghandi's ideals and logic. It also balances world views and conflicts and Ghandi's presumed purpose.
