Gandhi : a very short introduction by Bhikhu C Parekh( Book )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and Gujarati and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gandhi was one of the few men in history to fight simultaneously on moral, religious, political, social, economic, and cultural fronts. Gandhi's life and thought has had an enormous impact both within and outside India, and he continues to be widely revered as one of the greatest moral and political leaders of the twentieth century." "In the Very Short Introduction to Gandhi's life and thought, Bhikhu Parekh cutlines both Gandhi's major philosophical insights and the limitations of his thought. He looks at Gandhi's spiritual view of politics, his unique form of liberal communitarianism, and his theories of oppression, non-violent action, and active citizenship. He also considers how the success of Gandhi's principles was limited by his lack of coherent theories of evil, and of state and power, and how his hostility to modern civilization impeded his appreciation of its complexity."--Jacket

Marx's theory of ideology by Bhikhu C Parekh( Book )

20 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Marx's concept of ideology has been a subject of considerable discussion, much of the debate has proved to be rather disappointing. There has been no systematic attempt to examine why Marx needed the concept of ideology, why it was an important concept for him and how it related to his views on truth and objectivity. This book, first published in 1982, considers these and other neglected questions. It explains why Marx continued to use the term ideology throughout his life to mean both idealism and apologia and traces the complex ways in which, according to Marx, such talented writers
