An Autobiography, Or, The Story of My Experiments With TruthBook - 2001
Gandhi succeeded in uniting India in a national movement and did as much in the first half of the twentieth century as any other single individual to change the course of history. In this classic autobiography, he recounts the story of his life from boyhood and child-marriage, through the first stirrings of non-violent protest in South Africa to the early phase of his part in India's fight for independence. Gandhi's aim in this book was not to write a conventional autobiography but to relate his numerous experiments in his search for Absolute Truth - the sovereign principle behind his struggle against racism, violence and colonialism. Powerful and inspirational, it reveals the heart and mind of one of the world's great spiritual leaders.
