Summary

There have been few true examples of the use of non-violent political campaigns since Gandhi developed his technique of satyagraha. Given the obvious benefits of non-violence, this begs the question why. This book aims to answer that question by showing that the technique of satyagraha is religious as well as moral and political; and that this religious element is one of the factors that have made Gandhian non-violence difficult to understand or truly believe in, especially in the West where the sacred and secular are considered to be separate. If non-violent politics are to be practiced in the twenty-first century and beyond, then full recognition and consideration must be given to this aspect of non-violence.
