1 Tridip Suhrud & Thomas Weber (Eds)
Beloved Bapu: The Gandhi-Mirabehn Correspondence
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125056157 / 9788125056157; Hardcover; New; New; 
The current volume offers readers unprecedented insight into the relationship between Mahatma Gandhi and Mirabehn, his foremost Western woman disciple, who came to India to dedicate her life to Gandhi and and remained his faithful companion for twenty-three years. Gandhi and Mira corresponded extensively when they were not together. The current volume brings together this correspondence in its entirety for the first time, interweaving Gandhi’s letters to Mira with her own responses to him and putting them in conversation with each other. The letters are arranged chronologically, which allows readers to understand the trajectory of Gandhi and Mira’s relationship. They reveal the depth and complexity of this connection, which was as close and loving as it was troubled. The letters also provide glimpses of Gandhi and Mira’s work in the khadi industry and in village India, their views on ashram life and people, their struggles with health and diet, and their opinions on living a good life and serving truth. The original letters reproduced here are accompanied by the editors’ commentary, which contextualizes the correspondence and offers readers important historical and biographical background information . This book will interest not only historians, students and scholars of Gandhi but also the lay reader. Printed Pages: 552. 101744

2 Thomas Weber
Gandhi as Disciple and Mentor
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 8175964324 / 9788175964327; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Thomas Weber’s book comprises a series of biographical reflections about people who influenced Gandhi, and those who were, in turn, influenced by him. While the previous literature has tended to focus on Gandhi’s political legacy, Weber’s book explores the spiritual, social and philosophical resonances of these relationships, and it is with these aspects of the Mahatma’s life in mind, that the author selects his central protagonists. These include friends such as Henry Polak and Hermann Kallenbach, who are not as well known as those usually cited, but who left a deep impression nevertheless, and motivated some of Gandhi’s major life changes. Conversely, the work of luminaries such as E.F. Schumacher and Gene Sharp reveal the Mahatma’s influence in arenas which are not traditionally associated with his thinking. Weber’s book offers new and intriguing insights into the life and thought of one of the most significant figures of the twentieth century. Contents Preface 1. Introduction 2. Gandhi influenced 3. Henry Polak and the setting up of Phoenix settlement 4. Hermann Kallenbach and the move to Tolstoy Farm 5. Maganlal Gandhi and the decision to leave Sabarmati 6. Jamnalal Bajaj and the move to Sevagram 7. The top of the hourglass: Gandhi influenced 8. Gandhi’s influence 9. Arne Naess: the ecological movement finds depth 10. Johan Galtung: peace research moves beyond war 11. E. F. Schumacher: economics as if people mattered 12. Gene Sharp: nonviolent activism becomes a political method 13. The bottom of the hourglass: Gandhi’s influence. Printed Pages: 294. 033210

3 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.

Going Native: Gandhi's Relationship With Western Women
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174368205 / 9788174368201; Softcover; New; 
Gandhi's relationship with women has proved irresistibly fascinating to many, but it is surprising how little scholarly work has been undertaken on his attitudes to and relationships with women. Going Native details Gandhi's relationship with Western women, including those who inspired him, worked with him, supported him in his political activities in South Africa, or helped shape his international image. Of particular note are those women who 'went native' to live with Gandhi as close friends and disciples, those who were drawn to him because of a shared interest in celibacy, those who came seeking a spiritual master, or came because of mental confusion. Some joined him because they were fixated on his person rather than because of an interest in his social programme. Through these fascinating women, we get a different insight into Gandhi, who encouraged them to come and then was often captivated, and at times exasperated, by them. Printed Pages: 406. 108531

The Shanti Sena: Philosophy, History and Action
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036830 / 9788125036838; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The recent large-scale communal disturbances in India have prompted some older Gandhians to voice the opinion that the time may have come to reactivate the Shanti Sena, Mahatma Gandhi’s Peace Army, that did impressive work in promoting communal harmony between the late 1950’s and the mid-1970s. Although the idea of a Shanti Sena was considered to be of fundamental importance by Gandhi, he had little success in setting it up in his lifetime. It took the foresight and efforts of Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan, and the organising ability of Narayan Desai. The history of this peace army that they brought into life and directed is not only an inspiring one, it is also important, given the rise in sectarian violence in India and the recent growth of international peace teams that looks to the Sena for motivation and guidance. Sena members worked in conflict resolution at the grassroots level and undertook peace missions during riots, convinced dacoits to turn themselves into authorities , carried out relief work following wars, experimented with nonviolent defence, conducted nonviolence training camps and even played a role in unarmed peacekeeping work in the international sphere. Relying on interviews with key participants and archival material, this thought-provoking work contributes greatly to the study of a unique experiment in practical nonviolence. This is the first study of its kind that has chronicled in such detail the activities and history of the Shanti Sena during its most active years, and discussed the prospects for its reinvigoration.
