An Autobiography by Mahatma Gandhi,Mahadev Haribhai Desai Summary

Mohandas K Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century. Gandhi was 56 when the book appeared and he lived what he preached for another 23 years, through triumph and tragedy. As every reader will discover, his autobiography is not the usual conventional narrative. It is a reflection, a confession and above all, a critical self-examination of himself and his ideas. Gandhi remains and will remain a visionary for all times.

An Autobiography by M. K. Gandhi Summary

In this autobiography, also titled The Story of My Experiments with Truth, Mohandas K. Gandhi recounts his life from childhood up until 1921, noting that "my life from this point onward has been so public that there is hardly anything about it that people do not know." HarperCollins chose this work as one of the "100 Most Important Spiritual Books of the 20th Century." The pursuit of truth was a guiding principle for Gandhi.

He also notes that this "will of course include experiments with non-violence, celibacy and other principles of conduct believed to be distinct from truth."

An Autobiography or The Story of My Experiments with Truth by M K Gandhi Summary

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is among the most enigmatic, charismatic, deeply revered and equally reviled figures of the twentieth century. His Autobiography, one of the most widely read and translated Indian books of all time, is a classic that allows us to glimpse the transformation of a well-meaning lawyer into a Satyagrahi and an ashramite. In this first-ever critical edition, eminent scholar Tridip Suhrud shines new light on Gandhi's life and thought. The deeply researched notes elucidate the contexts and characters of the Autobiography, while alternative translations capture the flavour, cadence and quirkiness of the Gujarati. In the highly original and insightful introduction, Suhrud traces Gandhi's transformation into a Satyagrahi, a seeker of Truth as God, and explores possible modes of reading the Autobiography. This edition is an absorbing, illuminating text about the life-affirming journey of the most public yet most complex figure of Indian history.

Les Confessions de Frannie Langton by Sara COLLINS Summary

Dans la lignée de Sarah Waters et de Margaret Atwood, Sara Collins signe un roman noir gothique saisissant, qui nous plonge, entre la Jamaïque et le Londres du XIX e siècle, dans une véritable épopée où se mêlent colonialisme, esclavage et racisme ; culpabilité, amour et rédemption. Esclave. Frannie Langton grandit à Paradise, dans une plantation de canne à sucre, où elle est le jouet de chacun : de sa maîtresse, qui se pique de lui apprendre à lire tout en la martyrisant, puis de son maître, qui la contraint à prendre part aux plus atroces expériences scientifiques... Domestique. À son arrivée à Londres, la jeune femme est offerte comme un vulgaire accessoire à George et Marguerite Benham, l'un des couples les plus raffinés d'Angleterre. Séductrice. Seule contre tous, Frannie trouve une alliée en Marguerite. Entre ces deux lectrices invétérées se noue un lien indéfectible. Une foudroyante passion. Une sulfureuse liaison. Meurtrière. Aujourd'hui, Frannie est accusée du double-meurtre des Benham. La foule se presse aux portes de la cour d'assises pour assister à son procès. Pourtant, de cette nuit tragique, elle ne garde aucun souvenir. Pour tenter de recouverer la mémoire, Frannie prend la plume... Victime ? Qui est vraiment Frannie Langton ?

His attempts to get closer to this divine power led him to seek purity through simple living, celibacy, and ahimsa a life without violence. It is in this sense that he calls his book "The Story of My Experiments with Truth", offering it also as a reference for those who would follow in his footsteps.

Le tatoueur d'Auschwitz by Heather Morris Summary

Sous un ciel de plomb, des prisonniers défilent à l’entrée du camp d’Auschwitz. Bientôt, ils ne seront plus que des numéros tatoués sur le bras. C'est Lale, un déporté, qui est chargé de cette sinistre tâche. Il travaille le regard rivé au sol pour éviter de voir la douleur dans les yeux de ceux qu’il marque à jamais. Un jour, pourtant, il lève les yeux sur Gita et la jeune femme devient sa lumière dans ce monde d’une noirceur infinie. Ils savent d’emblée qu’ils sont faits l’un pour l’autre. Mais dans cette prison où l’on se bat pour un morceau de pain et pour sauver sa vie, il n'y a pas de place pour l'amour. Ils doivent se contenter de minuscules moments de joie, qui leur font oublier le cauchemar du quotidien. Mais Lale a fait une promesse : un jour, ils seront libres, deux jeunes gens heureux de vivre ensemble. Deux personnes plus fortes que l’horreur du monde. L’histoire vraie d’un homme et d’une femme qui ont trouvé l’amour au cœur de l’enfer.

Le Point de bascule by Malcom Gladwell Summary

Comment New York, capitale du crime qu début des années 1990, est-elle devenue en quelques mois une ville sécuritaire ? Comment une marque de chaussures has been a-t-elle reconquis le marché mondial de la mode grâce à quelques clubs branchés de Manhattan ? L'idée du Point de bascule est simple : pour comprendre l'émergence des modes, la naissance des best-sellers, ou tout autre changement a priori mystérieux, il suffit de les concevoir comme des épidémies. Marketing, tabagisme, idéologie religieuse... Rien ne résiste à l'analyse de Malcolm Gladwell.

My Experiments with the Truth by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi Summary

Four or five years ago, at the instance of some of my nearest co-workers, I agreed to write my autobiography. I made the start, but scarcely had I turned over the first sheet when riots broke out in Bombay and the work remained at a standstill. it is not my purpose to attempt a real autobiography. I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography. But I shall not mind, if every page of it speaks only of my experiments. I believe, or at any rate flatter myself with the belief, that a connected account of all these experiments will not be without benefit to the reader.
