Sean Scalmer’s Gandhi in the West tackles a topic familiar to scholars of nonviolence, popular protest, and pacifism in the twentieth century. That topic, of course, is the figure of Mohandas Gandhi, and more broadly his influence on the methods, the style, and the philosophy of nonviolent protest. This is terrain that has been covered in part by other scholars, most notably Charles Chatfield in his classic The Americanization of Gandhi: Images of the Mahatma (1976). Others, such as Michael Nojeim, Joseph Kip Kosek, Leilah Danielson, and David Cortright have also made valuable recent contributions to this field by examining the reach of Gandhi’s appeal in the practice of nonviolence in the Western world.
