A Comprehensive, Annotated Bibliography on Mahatma Gandhi - Vol. 1

By Ananda M. Pandiri | Go to book overview

Preface

The subject of Gandhi's life and contributions has long been an area of study and research across many disciplines including political science, philosophy, social science and history, to name just a few. Recent years have witnessed a resurgence of public and academic interest in Gandhi and his philosophy of non-violence. Yet, the most recent comprehensive Gandhian bibliography was published nearly two decades ago. This renewed interest in Gandhi and the vast corpus of Gandhian literature published over the past two decades have created a need for an updated and comprehensive Gandhian bibliography.

This work is a compilation of all Gandhian material published in English including biographies of Gandhi, works by Gandhi, compilations of Gandhi's writings, the Collected Works of Gandhi, Prefaces and Forewords written by Gandhi to several books, and books read by Gandhi. This volume also contains a comprehensive list of source material for Gandhian literature, divided into five main sections: Gandhian Bibliographies; library catalogs that were consulted; Gandhian bibliographies in books on Gandhi; Trade, National, and general bibliographies and Indexes; and, Periodical sources consulted. Finally, this volume provides three separate indexes: author, title and subject. The next volume in this series will cover all books, parts of books and pamphlets written about Gandhian topics.

Each entry in this work is provided with complete bibliographic information and detailed annotation. For nearly every entry made, the corresponding document was thoroughly examined and all care was taken to insure that the entry information was accurate and complete. One area that received considerable emphasis in this work is the annotation, which can greatly enhance the value and usefulness of the bibliography to users. Annotations in this work typically range from 50 to 100 words, highlighting content, descriptive, evaluative, use, historical or bibliographic notes. Each annotation contains some or all of these notes, depending upon the work under review. The content note is a brief note on the contents or, in some cases, a listing of chapter headings. The descriptive note is a non-judgmental indication of the scope of the work. The evaluative note assessed the authority of the document and appraises the style of writing and the quality of illustrations. The use note indicates the special applications or use of the material for particular readers. The historical and bibliographical notes highlight the character and origin of the work as well as contemporary reactions to the publication.
