Mahatma Gandhis Autobiographie wurde von Gandhi in den zwanziger Jahren in Form wöchentlicher Beiträge zu seiner Gujarati-Zeitschrift "Navajivan" niedergeschrieben, dann von seinem Sekretär Mahadev Desai ins Englische übersetzt und nach Durchsicht und Billigung Gandhis in Buchform veröffentlicht. Sie ist ein einzigartiges Dokument seiner Wahrheitssuche und der Nachwelt gegenüber ein lebendiger Protest gegen die Verflüchtigung des Mahatma-Bildes zur Legende, denn sie schildert mit einer Offenheit, die gleich weit entfernt ist von eitler Selbststilisierung wie von koketter Selbstentlarvung, die Entwicklung dieser ebenso bedeutenden wie eigenartigen Persönlichkeit, bei der der Mensch deshalb nicht vom Politiker zu trennen ist, weil beide gleichermassen im religiösen Grunde wurzeln. Zeitlich bis an die Schwelle von Gandhis Wirksamkeit als Befreier Indiens im grossen Stil führend, legt sie alle jenen Elemente seines Geistes und Charakters, die ihn zu seiner welthistorischen Rolle befähigten, mit einer Rückhaltlosigkeit dar, die sein Denken und Handeln von den Fundamenten her verstehen lehrt. Der Leser nimmt teil an Gandhis Jugenderlebnissen, seiner Begegnung mit der englischen Welt, seinen ihn ins politische Leben hineinziehenden Erfahrungen in Südafrika und seinem Hineinwachsen in das Freiheitsstreben Indiens, dem er dann die moralische Basis und die geistige Richtung geben sollte.

In this autobiography, also titled The Story of My Experiments with Truth, Mohandas K. Gandhi recounts his life from childhood up until 1921, noting that "my life from this point onward has been so public that there is hardly anything about it that people do not know." HarperCollins chose this work as one of the "100 Most Important Spiritual Books of the 20th Century." The pursuit of truth was a guiding principle for Gandhi. He states that it "is not my purpose to attempt a real autobiography. I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography." He also notes that this "will of course include experiments with non-violence, celibacy and other principles of conduct believed to be distinct from truth."

The remarkable life and inspiring beliefs of a legendary peacemaker and liberator of India—in his own words. Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always. In the story of his life from early childhood through 1921, Mohandas K. Gandhi candidly reveals his young investigations into sin and seeking atonement; the philosophy, art, and literature that influenced his thoughts and ideas; and his first experiences with politics and protest, which would provide the foundation for his nonviolent struggle for justice, equality, and Indian independence from the British Empire. Gandhi’s intention in setting down an account of his formative years was to clarify the spiritual principles by which he lived and to inspire individuals and movements in their quests for personal and political freedom. The timeless lessons to be derived from the autobiography of this dedicated seeker of truth and brilliant leader continue to resonate wherever freedom is challenged by tyranny. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

The first critical, annotated edition of M. K. Gandhi's most famous written work, published seventy years after his death In the mid-1920s, prompted by a "small, still voice" that encouraged him to lay bare what was known only to him and his God, M. K. Gandhi began writing and publishing his autobiography. Drafted during a period of intensive fasting and "in-dwelling" at his ashram in Ahmedebad, his story of the soul portrayed the deeper, more inward experiences that made him externally an innovator in the struggles against violence, racism, and colonialism. The book, written in Gujarati and translated into English by Mahadev Desai, would become an international classic, hailed as one of the "100 Best Spiritual Books of the 20th Century." This first critical edition of this seminal work by leading Gandhi scholar Tridip Suhrud offers an unprecedented window into the original Gujarati text. Including both alternative English translations and illuminating notes, as well as a deeply researched introduction, it will bring renewed critical attention to one of the world's most widely read books.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is among the most enigmatic, charismatic, deeply revered and equally reviled figures of the twentieth century. His Autobiography, one of the most widely read and translated Indian books of all time, is a classic that allows us to glimpse the transformation of a well-meaning lawyer into a Satyagrahi and an ashramite. In this first-ever critical edition, eminent scholar Tridip Suhrud shines new light on Gandhi's life and thought. The deeply researched notes elucidate the contexts and characters of the Autobiography, while alternative translations capture the flavour, cadence and quirkiness of the Gujarati. In the highly original and insightful introduction, Suhrud traces Gandhi's transformation into a Satyagrahi, a seeker of Truth as God, and explores possible modes of reading the Autobiography. This edition is an absorbing, illuminating text about the life-affirming journey of the most public yet most complex figure of Indian history.

Mohandas K Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century. Gandhi was 56 when the book appeared and he lived what he preached for another 23 years, through triumph and tragedy. As every reader will discover, his autobiography is not the usual conventional narrative. It is a reflection, a confession and above all, a critical self-examination of himself and his ideas. Gandhi remains and will remain a visionary for all times.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

English summary: Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964) wrote his world history in form of letters to his daughter Indira (1917-1984) in the 1930s. The work represents a key text of cosmopolitan world historical consideration from the first half of the 20th century. German text. German description: Dieses Werk, das Jawaharlal Nehru wahrend seiner Gefangnishaft in den 1930er Jahren fur seine Tochter Indira verfasste, ist eine weltweit noch immer hochst populare Geschichtsdarstellung. Das in vieler Hinsicht meisterhafte Opus, das auch ein erwachsenes Lesepublikum anspricht, soll nach einem halben Jahrhundert erneut der deutschsprachigen Offentlichkeit zuganglich gemacht werden. Es reprasentiert einen Schlusseltext kosmopolitischer Weltgeschichtsbetrachtung, der auch heute noch eine oft erstaunliche Aktualitat besitzt. Indem das Werk die vertrauten Betrachtungshorizonte erweitert und den europaischen und asiatischen Blickwinkel zu verbinden weiss, ermoglicht es jenen transkulturellen Perspektivenwechsel, ohne den historisch-politische Bildung im Zeitalter der Globalisierung nicht mehr denkbar ist.
