Recently, there has been a phenomenal revival in the interest of Gandhi. This revival centers on the Gandhian technique of conflict resolution which is not only unique in history, but is also currently becoming very popular. Be it the negotiation skills taught in management courses, or stress management in psychological therapies, or the operational aspect of NGOs, Gandhian techniques are being increasingly introduced. All these ~neo-applications of Gandhian theory are rooted in his original and seminal contribution to the theory and practice of protest, i.e., satyagraha. After evaluating various theories of protest, this book examines and analyzes the evolution of satyagraha from its origin in South Africa to its various uses by Gandhi in India.
