Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi -- also called The Mahatma, or Great Soul -- was one of the world's most unusual and remarkable leaders. He led nonviolent movements for social justice and human rights in South Africa. In his native India, Gandhi led successful movements to break free from the ruling British and reform an ancient class system. Through his efforts, nonviolent action for social change became an effective political tactic -- and an enduring spiritual philosophy embraced by millions. His words and deeds greatly influenced new generations of political and religious leaders worldwide.
