Colonialism, tradition, and reform: an analysis of Gandhi's political discourse
This revised edition of the widely acclaimed Colonialism, Tradition and Reform outlines and evaluates Gandhi's efforts to regenerate the moral order of Indian society appropriate to the modern age. Bhikhu Parekh considers recent works, draws on his own deeper understanding of Gandhi today, and includes a new chapter on Gandhi and the bourgeoisie.
The book locates Gandhi in the tradition of reformist discourse developed by his 19th century predecessors, and highlights the way he both continued and broke with it.
