This bibliography would not have been possible but for the generous help of many institutions and individuals in the U.S., England and India. Among the institutions, I am most indebted to my own, Southern Connecticut State University and the Connecticut State University Board, for awarding me two sabbatical leaves and seven research grants in the past eight years to pursue this project.
Three of my colleagues at the Southern Connecticut State University Library were especially generous in helping me with this project. Thomas Clarie, our Reference Librarian and accomplished bibliographer with several publications to his credit, provided invaluable guidance throughout and actually obtained numerous Gandhi documents from several on-line databases. Dr. Paul Holmer, our Inter-Library Loan Librarian, procured literally hundreds of books and journal articles from various institutions in the U.S. and abroad. Edward Hoyer, Jr., our Periodicals Librarian, obtained numerous Gandhian documents from various periodicals databases. I am grateful to my colleagues for their interest and support in spite of their own demanding schedules. I am grateful to Ms. Frances E. Swartzburg, also at Southern Connecticut State University, for all her help in document preparation and production.
I am deeply indebted to Prof. Dennis G. Dalton, noted Gandhian scholar and Professor of Political Science at Barnard College, Columbia University, for his advice and insights on various aspects of this project. Prof. Dalton's dedication to Gandhian studies and ideals is truly inspirational and he has been a great source of encouragement and support for my work.
I am grateful to Mr. Kanubhai L. Shah, Director of Gujarat Vidyapith Library in Ahmedabad, India, for providing me unlimited access to the extensive Gandhian collection in their library. During my stay in Ahmedabad, Mr. Shah graciously provided me with accommodations in the library guest house and took great pains to ensure that my stay was comfortable and my research, fruitful. I am thankful to Mr. Navalsinh Vaghela and Mr. Kirit Bhavsar of the Gujarat Vidyapith Library for their efforts in helping me locate necessary Gandhian material. I am thankful to Prof. Ramlal Parikh, Vice Chancellor of Gujarat Vidyapith, for his cooperation and interest in my research.
