Originally published in 1931, this book forms the third volume of the series, following on from Mahatma Gandhi: His Own Story, and relates in his own words Mahatma Gandhi's epic stuggle in the Transvaal to set right the wrongs which had been done to the Indian Community. There he first proved to the world the practical success of his own original method, called Satyagraha, or Truth Force, whereby the evils of the world may be righted without recourse to the false arbitrament of war.
