'I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills'

Gandhi united India in a national movement and changed the course of history. In this classic autobiography, first published under the title The Story of My Experiments with Truth, he recounts his life from boyhood through the first stirrings of non-violent protest in South Africa to the early phase of his part in India's fight for independence. Setting out the principles behind his struggle against racism, violence and colonialism, this powerful work reveals the heart and mind of one of the world's greatest political and spiritual leaders.

Translated by Mahadev Desai
With an introduction by Sunil Khilnani

Penguin Classics

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
