| In the Footsteps of Gandhi: conversations with spiritual social activists
by Catherine Ingram
The spring of 2003 witnessed some of the largest worldwide demonstrations for peace in history. 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 author and interviews with Mubarak Awad, Ram Dass, Thich Nhat Hanh, Cesar Chavez, H.H. the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Joan Baez, and others.
To live for the benefit of others heals us. These are interviews with men and women who tread the path of compassionate action and leave markers to point the way. A wonderful book! - Stephen and Ondrea Levine
