Regarded as the Father of the Nation in India and globally as the most successful exponent of nonviolent civil disobedience, Mahatma Gandhi is known as a symbol of wisdom and compassion. Former High Court Justice Michael Kirby, himself a tireless advocate for non-discrimination and human rights, here shows the applicability of Gandhi's views on some of the world's most pressing current issues: women's rights, climate change, animal rights and sex and sexuality.

Adapted from Kirby's 2013 University of New South Wales Gandhi Oration, What Would Gandhi Do? shows how remarkably useful Gandhi's insights remain when confronting the world's challenges.

  • A bit thin in its arguments

    By Chin Bong
    I respect the lifetime works of Mr. Kirby but I felt this book addressed the themes only very briefly, with a few abstract quotes from Gandhi, and this perhaps made the arguments put forward sound speculative. But I admire the ideals put forward and this book is a fast and interesting read!
