Description

An activist for forty three years, author Bernie Meyer took his message one step further and began emulating Gandhi in his dress, words, and actions. This memoir details his experiences while portraying Gandhi and advocating justice and peace. In The American Gandhi, Meyer also presents cutting-edge theories about human motivation and violence utilizing Gandhi's experiences and principles. Advance praise for The American Gandhi "Bernie Meyer speaks with, in and through the Gandhian spirit of actively engaged nonviolence. He has lived through and experienced some of the most formative times and events of the American nation. This collection of autobiographical essays deserves a wide reading audience. Rarely do we find such spiritual and philosophical depth combined so integrally with social activism and long term commitment to progressive change in society. This voice is genuinely a national treasure." - Daniel Liechty, School of Social Work, Illinois State University "For 40 years, Meyer has seen and done it all in America's movements for peace and justice. Activists have come and gone, but Meyer has stayed, and the knowledge he has gained is invaluable for anyone hoping to achieve positive change in the 21st century." - Charlie Meconis, founder, Institute for Global Security Studies
