Mahatma Gandhi


Translated by Mahadev Desai and with a New PrefaceThe only authorized American editionMohandas K. Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century. In a new foreword, noted peace expert and teacher Sissela Bok urges us to adopt Gandhi's "attitude of experimenting, of tesing what will and will not bear close scrutiny, what can and cannot be adapted to new circumstances," in order to bring about change in our own lives and communities. All royalties earned on this book are paid to the Navajivan Trust, founded by Gandhi, for use in carrying on his work.

Einstein's Dreams

Einstein's Dreams was an international bestseller and has been translated into thirty languages. It was runner up for the 1994 PEN New England / Boston Globe Winship Award. Einstein's Dreams was also the March 1998 selection for National Public Radio's "Talk of the Nation" Book Club. The novel has been used in numerous colleges and universities, in many cases for university-wide adoptions in "common-book" programs. An off-off-Broadway adaptation of the novel ran briefly in 2003.

The novel fictionalizes Albert Einstein as a young scientist troubled by dreams as he works on his theory of relativity in 1905. The book consists of 30 chapters, each exploring one dream about time Einstein has during this time. The framework of the book consists of a prelude, three interludes, and epilogue. Einstein's friend, Michele Besso, appears in these sections.
Each dream involves a non-traditional conception of time. Such scenarios may involve exaggerations of true phenomena related to relativity, or may be entirely fantastical.
