What Gandhi did and stood for is, and would remain, the greatest living legacy of Gandhi to humanity. His thought and actions were essentially all inclusive; they were intertwined in practical idealism and incorporation (inclusion). His stress on justice, equality, fairness, equity, human dignity and love for all beings demonstrates his commitment to inclusiveness. Gandhi presents a moral map of history. To him, development of moral character was essential for freedom, equality and universal happiness. It has to begin with self-reform or Swaraj based on truth and non-violence. On the basis of truth and non-violence, he developed a technique for specific kind of political action, known as Satyagraha which he extended to reach Sarvodaya. He thought and worked for the whole humanity. His emphasis on Daridranarayan, Swadeshi, voluntary poverty, voluntary simplicity and slowness was, in fact, a virulent condemnation of modern civilization which was nothing less than an outright rejection of capitalism. He set an example of amaging courage and fearlessness. He strove to visualize India as a community based on socio-economic and political  justice, and fraternity, bonded together by love(non-violence), dignity of individual and of ‘physical labour and a non-exploitative processes of production.’

An indepth study of Gandhian idealism and strategies of inclusion has been attempted in this book. This outstanding book will be great use to students and scholars of all fields as well as general readers, social workers and green radicals.
