Gandhi in a Canadian Context: Relationships between Mahatma Gandhi and Canada

DSR Graduate Alex Damm (Wilfred Laurier University) has published a new book, Gandhi in a Canadian Context: Relationships between Mahatma Gandhi and Canada (Waterloo: Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2017) with contributions by numerous Canadian, Australian and Indian scholars.

From the website of the publisher:

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 early in the twentieth century, and the implications of Gandhi’s 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.
