This volume, the second of the multi-volume series Rediscovering Gandhi focuses on non-violence. Consisting of two parts, the first explores Gandhian, feminist and religious approaches to understanding existing conflicts at all levels of the society. It also challenges the notion that Gandhi did not ever endorse the use of violence. Part II of the book offers a Gandhian reading of contemporary trends in conflict management and more specifically the alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Introducing the fundamentals of Satyagraha it formulates certain possible reinterpretations of the ADR label and some of its central themes from Gandhian perspectives. It analyses dispute processes, scrutinizes various paradigmatic criticisms raised against ADR movement, and argues that Satyagraha offers the most potent standpoint from which to examine and enrich the ADR movements. Printed Pages: 190.
