1 Thomas Weber (Author) & Rajmohan Gandhi (Frwd)
Gandhi, Gandhism and the Gandhians
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174364684 / 9788174364685; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mahatma Gandhi and his philosophy of truth and non-violence have intrigued the world for decades. Looking at the Western and Indian influences that had gone into making Gandhi the Mahatma, and the central importance of Gandhi to non-violent activism, these essays reclaim the power of truth and non-violence, which can still change the destinies of people and nations. In this collection, Weber discusses Gandhi, his ideology, and how India and the rest of the world is interpreting and reinterpreting the Mahatma. The doctrine of conflict resolution theory, new environmentalism, peace research, deep ecology, and Buddhist economics based on Gandhian principles renews the world's belief in Mahatma and his teachings for our lives and our times.

2 Rajmohan Gandhi
Ghaffar Khan: Non-Violent Badshah of the Pakhtuns
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0670057657 / 9780670057658; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
`There is nothing surprising in a Muslim or a Pathan like me subscribing to the creed of nonviolence. It is not a new creed. It was followed 1,400 years ago by the Prophet all the time when he was in Mecca,' said Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, whose influence and fame as Pashtun nationalist and proponent of nonviolence and social reform crossed the Durand Line (the Afghan `border') on both sides. Born into the Muhammadzai tribe, from the Charsadda valley in the Pakhtun heartland, this passionate believer in the nonviolent core of Islam sought to wean his people—the fierce warrior Pakhtuns or Pathans of the North-West Frontier Province—from their violent traditions and fight for a separate Pakhtun homeland that would no longer be a buffer between Russia and Britain in the Great Game. In 1929 came Mahatma Gandhi's call for nonviolent resistance against British rule and Badshah Khan, as he was known to many, responded by raising the Khudai Khidmatgars (`Servants of God'), an `army' of 1,00,000 men who pledged themselves to the service of mankind and nonviolence as a creed. For this, and for his steadfast devotion to his principles, this towering figure was imprisoned for a total of twenty-seven years, first by the British and later by the Pakistani government. Rajmohan Gandhi offers fresh insights into the life and achievements of an extraordinary man, drawing close parallels with the life of Mahatma Gandhi, his `brother in spirit'. He looks at Ghaffar Khan `with the spectacles of today rather than those of 1947', emphasizing that for people in the twenty-first century who live in the shadow of September 11, Badshah Khan's unwavering commitment to nonviolence and Hindu-Muslim unity offers valuable lessons.
