Gandhi in a Canadian Context
Relationships between Mahatma Gandhi and Canada
Editor: Alex Damm
Examines a variety of relationships between Mahatma Gandhi (1869–1948) and facets of life in Canada.
Gandhi in a Canadian Context examines a range of intriguing and under-studied connections between India’s greatest nationalist leader, Mahatma Gandhi (1869–1948), and facets of life in Canada, including Gandhi’s interest in and contact with Canada and Canadians in the early 20th century, and the implications of his thinking on a range of issues in Canadian society today. This collection of essays by Canadian scholars explores topics such as Gandhi’s awareness of Canada; the academic study of Gandhi in Canadian higher education; and dimensions of Gandhi’s thought that demand greater attention and have enduring relevance for individuals and communities in Canada. These range from a peace-oriented Islam and participation in direct action campaigns to a more constructive politics and environmental stewardship.
