Conquest of Violence: The Gandhian Philosophy of Conflict

By Joan V. Bondurant
Princeton University Press, 1958
269 pp.

As the author observes, this is less an essay on Gandhian political philosophy than an effort to find "by abstracting from the Gandhian experiments a theoretical key to the problem of social and political conflict." In the course of her very interesting and stimulating discussion the author deals with such issues as the relation of Gandhian satyagraha to certain strands in Western political philosophy and its adequacy in a totalitarian setting.
