Gandhi, Mohandas K.: An Autobiography, v.1, 20 Jan 2008

"I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and nonviolence are as old as the hills." - Mohandas K. Gandhi

In 1925, at the age of 56, Gandhi began writing a series of articles that were printed in Young India and that would become his autobiography which is subtitled The Story of My Experiments with Truth. The tome is a small portion of his extensive writings which mostly appeared in the form of personal letters and newspaper articles. It predates his Salt March and the nearly two decades of further work for people which led to Indian independence in 1947. It is written assuming that the reader has some knowledge of the events of the time, so it may be useful to read a biography of Gandhi (e.g., Chadha's Gandhi: A Life) before reading this autobiography. Gandhi also spends many chapters on issues that many would consider mundane including his dietetic habits. All of these facts prevent the reader from being at all satisfied in understanding the man from a simple reading of this autobiography. But the work is nonetheless informative and critically important in that it reveals many of his early thoughts and the events that shaped his character and drove his thinking and actions.
