Reviews and Awards
"Bidyut Chakrabarty has written one of those unusual books that actually delivers more to readers than is suggested by the title. ...This book provides an engaging, thought-provoking, well-researched examination of the lives and times of two of the most influential figures of the twentieth century." -Clayborne Carson
"In this impressively researched and clearly written work, Bidyut Chakrabarty weaves together political theory, political sociology, and biography to demonstrate the close similarities and critical differences between Gandhi and King. With fresh perspectives, this impressive study broadens our understanding of these preeminent thinkers and activists of nonviolent resistance to injustice."-Ronald J. Terchek, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland
"...a fine, creative and informative volume that will be of interest to political scientists and peace studies scholars working in a number of sub-fields."-Political Studies Review
