Gandhi Talk Bibliography

On January Fifth, 2003, I gave a talk about Gandhi at Fourth Unitarian Fellowship in Lake Mohegan, NY. Below are references to the material I used for the talk, which I was unable to provide on the day of the talk, due to an illness (throwing up slugs.)


Gandhi, M. K. Non-Violent Resistance. New York: Schocken Books, 1951.
This is the book we read in the course Beth and I took on Gandhi and Domestic Non-Violence with William Boreman.

Gandhi, M. K. An Autobiography or The Story of my Experiments with Truth. Trans. Mahadev Desai. Ahmedabad: Navajivan Publishing House, 1927.
I drew heavily on this book for the talk. Please also see Web Links.

Morris, William The Well at the World's End Phoenix Mill: Alan Sutton Publishing, 1896.
Page 20 was read in the talk.

Hyman, Anthony Charles Babbage Pioneer of the Computer Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1982.
I read from page 109 in the talk.

Web Links

I got a lot of inspiration and information from the web. Polly's children's message was derived in part from a web page containing a student's book review of Jeanette Eaton's Gandhi: Fighter Without a Sword, which could not be obtained in time for the talk. This link is currently down, but is cached on Google...

Barbara Kingsolver's essay A Pure, High Note of Anguish can be found many places on the web, including

The best general Gandhi page I found was: The Official Mahatma Gandhi eArchive. Almost all the new information I needed was found there. The complete text of My Experiment with Truth can be downloaded in several formats and languages.

The .mp3 of Gandhi's voice, which is distinguished by being the only clip I could find on the web with decent sound can be found at: "My Spiritual Message" Mahatma Gandhi, 1931.
