His quest for racial justice for black South Africans as a leader of the African National Congress led to 27 years of imprisonment. Following intense international pressure on the Apartheid government, he was finally freed in 1990.

                      DESCRIPTION:

                      Thousands turned out to hear the dynamic senator from Illinois speak as he campaigned to become the President of the United States, to many, he embodied the American dream. He is bold and audacious, his rhetoric fiery and compelling. He encourages cross-over appeal, discourse, affiliation and has drawn many Americans, including today's youth, into politics. This is the story of Barack Obama, a man of mixed race heritage who inspires, listens, compromises and is often bipartisan. From his childhood in Hawaii and Indonesia to becoming the fifth African-American senator in U.S. history and later, a presidential candidate, this well-researched biography traces his hardships and successes, the people who most influenced his career, his personal life and his meteoric rise to pop icon status. Rounded out with photos, a timeline, a bibliography and an index, here is a must read for high school and undergraduate students of current events and political science.

                                          Against the backdrop of beatings, killings, bombings, threats and imprisoning, emerged Martin Luther King, driven to uplift all Americans, even if it meant martyrdom. This biography is a stellar introduction to the foremost leader of the civil rights movement. In gripping narrative style, it describes young Martin as son and grandson of formidable preachers, drawn to his calling as a minister too, but as one who would take on the entrenched racism of the South and North, through a nonviolent movement that changed the course of American history. King's story is compelling, right from his early life in an insular community of blacks in Atlanta, to his education at Morehouse College, Crozer Theological Seminary and Boston University, to his courtship of Coretta Scott leading into the early days of the civil rights movement and his role of leadership in the major demonstrations and sit-ins that took place, mainly in the South. We gain critical insight into the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations, as King negotiated with the presidents for equal rights for blacks.

                                                              The process of personal growth and transformation seldom happens "by accident", it is the product of our conscious choices. This book contains 39 powerful lessons of personal change, gleaned from Gandhi's life. It offers us invaluable advice on creating and leading an enlightened life, a more meaningful, purpose-driven, self-aware and socially responsible life. Drawing from a diverse range of fields such as psychology, management, leadership, philosophy and spirituality, Anand Kumarasamy explains and illustrates each of these lessons in language that is simple, vivid and highly interesting. These lessons are based on timeless principles which, if deeply reflected upon and integrated into our daily lives, can powerfully transform us while positively impacting the world around us.

The three cardinals of Gandhian Philosophy -truth, love and non-violence are so coherent, cohesive and co-focal that the absence of even one breaches the wholesomeness of the structure. However, all these elements ought to be understood across a much wider plane and in a much deeper sense beyond the threshold of their common meanings. The importance of the human factor in contemporary management can be seen in its finest form in Gandhian Management. Gandhiji's humanitarian canvas was so global and clarion call for natural justice so intense that he became an institution by himself much before the world discovered this reality.

Bapu had failed to convince two people in his lifetime, one was Jinnah and the other was Harilal. This novel was simultaneously serialized in the Sunday supplements of three Gujarati Dailies: Sam Kaleen of Bombay, Jansatta of Ahmedabad and Loksatta of Vadodra. In this book the author tries to make an ardent effort to understand yet another enigmatic facet of human life. The tussle between the father and the son was the most poignant and pathetic story of their lives. When Gandhi, who was busy attending meetings and conferences where the fate of forty crore Indians was to be decided often found headline in a newspaper screaming -Police Arrested Drunk Harilal For Creating A Scene On The Road and sometimes Harilal himself from the dais of the fundamentalist Muslim organization's meeting -'I shall continue fighting till Ba and Bapu embrace Islam.'

Put your principles to real practice, this was his message to the contemporary world. To him God was Truth and Truth was God. Here are essays and reflections on Mahatma Gandhi, one of the outstanding personalities not only of our time but of all times. Gandhiji was the greatest moral force in Indian history. For the accomplishment of liberty, justice and peace, he rediscovered the old techniques of Ahimsa and Satyagraha. He revealed to the masses a power not of rifles and machine guns, but the power innate in each individual, a power which this war-haunted world can exploit fully in making wars impossible. This book contains tribute to the Father of the Nation, from prominent thinkers like C. Fandrews, Aldous Huxley, Lin Yutang, A. Coomaraswamy, Sri Aurobindo and many others. Some of Gandhiji's most distinct and famous speeches are brought together in an appendix in this volume.

                                                                                                                                                                                                      In this book, the contributors explain how certain Gandhian concepts can be used for our nation’s advancement. For example, ‘Gandhian engineering’ can help boost India’s progress with its focus on getting more from fewer resources for more people. In addition, the gram swaraj approach alone can stop the mass exodus of youth from villages to cities in search of jobs—a major worry for urban planners and village economies today. These are just a few of the many applicable solutions based on Gandhi’s ideas you will come across in these pages.

This book will help you understand why Gandhi’s views are relevant now more than ever.

Altogether they represent a clear, direct guide for seekers of truth, whether they follow the path of Bhakti (devotion) or Jnana (knowledge).

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The Thirteenth Edition has just been released.A few additions of prominent disciples have been added but most of the pages still remain Arthur Osborne's. Ramana was a silent Teacher, if there was one. It would be more appropriate to call him the Silent One, for teaching denotes duality, the teacher and taught, while Ramana was, as a devotee wrote, the Pure Non-dual Essence. His most direct and profound teaching was transmitted in silence. However, how many were there that could immediately hear or experience the unspoken, the unwritten word? Devotees and visitors asked questions and out of his boundless compassion Bhagavan answered them in his own inimitable way, as the following excerpts will show. It was in 1911 that the first westerner, Frank Humphreys, then a policeman stationed in India, discovered Sri Ramana and wrote articles about him which were first published in The International Psychic Gazette in 1913. However, Sri Ramana only became relatively well known in and out of India after 1934 when Paul Brunton, having first visited Sri Ramana in January 1931, published the book A Search in Secret India, which became very popular. Resulting visitors included Paramahansa Yogananda, Somerset Maugham (whose 1944 novel The Razor's Edge models its spiritual guru after Sri Ramana), Mercedes de Acosta, Julian P. Johnson, and Arthur Osborne. Sri Ramana's relative fame spread throughout the 1940s. However, even as his fame spread, Sri Ramana was noted for his belief in the power of silence and his relatively sparse use of speech, as well as his lack of concern for fame or criticism.His lifestyle remained that of a renunciate. This work contains almost everything written by Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. His inspired compositions, and a number of translations from ancient Advaitic texts, representing the essence of his teachings. They fall into two categories--those which exemplify the path of surrender through love and devotion to the Divine, and those which are more doctrinal. The first group includes the Five Hymns to Sri Arunachala of which the first poem, The Marital Garland Of Letters "is among the most profound and moving poems in any language" and expresses the attitude of the soul aspiring for union with God.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Sri Ramana Maharshi (December 30, 1879- April 14, 1950), born Venkataraman Iyer, was an Indian sage. He was born to a Tamil-speaking Brahmin family in Tiruchuzhi, Tamil Nadu. After having attained liberation at the age of 16, he left home for Arunachala, a mountain considered sacred by Hindus, at Tiruvannamalai, and lived there for the rest of his life. Arunachala is located in Tamil Nadu, South India. Although born a Brahmin, after having attained moksha he declared himself an "Atiasrami", a Sastraic state of unattachment to anything in life and beyond all caste restrictions.Sri Ramana maintained that the purest form of his teachings was the powerful silence which radiated from his presence and quieted the minds of those attuned to it. He gave verbal teachings only for the benefit of those who could not understand his silence.His verbal teachings were said to flow from his direct experience of Consciousness (Atman) as the only existing reality. When asked for advice, he recommended self-enquiry as the fastest path to moksha. Though his primary teaching is associated with Non-dualism, Advaita Vedanta, and Jnana yoga, he recommended Bhakti to those he saw were fit for it, and gave his approval to a variety of paths and practices. Family Background Sri Ramana was born in a village called Tiruchuli near Madurai in Tamil Nadu, South India on Arudra Darshanam day, into an orthodox Hindu Tamil (Iyer) family, the second of four children of Sundaram Iyer (1845-1892) and Azhagammal (?-1922), and named Venkataraman at birth. His siblings were Nagaswamy (1877-1900), Nagasundaram (1886-1953) and sister Alamelu (1891/92-1953). Venkataraman's father was a respected pleader.[6] [edit] Childhood Venkataraman seemed a normal child with no apparent signs of future greatness. He was popular, good at sports, very intelligent but lazy at school, indulged in an average amount of mischief, and showed little religious interest. He did have a few unusual traits. When he slept, he went into such a deep state of unconsciousness that his friends could physically assault his body without waking him up. He also had an extraordinary amount of luck. In team games, whichever side he played for always won. This earned him the nickname 'Tangakai', which means 'golden hand'[7]. When Venkataraman was about 11, his father sent him to live with his paternal uncle Subbaiyar in Dindigul because he wanted his sons to be educated in English so they would be eligible to enter government service and only Tamil was taught at the village school in Tiruchuzhi. In 1891, when his uncle was transferred to Madurai, Venkataraman and his older brother Nagaswami moved with him.
