About the Book :

This book makes an in-depth study of Mahatma Gandhi's Politico-economic ideas and their relevance in present circumstances. Analyzing Gandhi's three Cardinal concepts-Varna dharma trusteeship, and decentralization, it reviews his views on labour, capital and agrarian reorganization. Also, it goes deep into the controversy of large versus small scale industries, with particular reference to Gandhi's views on the subject. A comparison is made as well between the ideas of Gandhi and Marx. The book is of great use to those who have interest in Gandhian studies.
