Regarded as the Father of the Nation in India and globally as the most successful exponent of nonviolent civil disobedience, Mahatma Gandhi is known as a symbol of wisdom and compassion. Former High Court Justice Michael Kirby, himself a tireless advocate for non-discrimination and human rights, here shows the applicability of Gandhi's views on some of the world's most pressing current issues: women's rights, climate change, animal rights and sex and sexuality.
Adapted from Kirby's 2013 University of New South Wales Gandhi Oration, What Would Gandhi Do? shows how remarkably useful Gandhi's insights remain when confronting the world's challenges.
'Cut[s] to the heart of the holy man's ideas and also provide[s] some wisdom for a modern audience.' Daily Telegraph

Comments about What Would Gandhi Do?:
A great little book to occupy a train journey or to read while waiting. Compact size makes it easy to carry in a pocket of handbag.Thought provoking as Michael Kirby intended.
