Lessons from a Great Soul

The life and legacy of Mohandas Gandhi is under scrutiny in an era which seems, rightly or wrongly, to abhor contradiction. Talat Ahmed is co-director of the Centre for South Asian Studies at the University of Edinburgh. In Mohandas Gandhi: Experiments in Civil Disobedience, she asks: was Gandhi's non-violent approach as successful as we imagine, and how useful might it be in repairing rifts today? A captivating discussion awaits.
