At a time when growing numbers of people are studying the works of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and other nonviolent leaders, these eloquent and inspiring voices for peace are more relevant than ever. In the Footsteps of Gandhi provides original and soul-searching interviews with contemporary leaders whose positive work has been part of international news for decades. Whether discussing AIDS, apartheid, or the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, they each embody the understanding that violence is not stopped by violence. Violence is only ended by love.
This revised edition of Catherine Ingram’s book features a new introduction by the editor and interviews with Mubarak Awad, Ram Dass, Thich Nhat Hanh, Cesar Chavez, H.H. the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Joan Baez, and others.
