The second series of sketches begins with contemporary times, looking back at Gandhi and finding that, so far from being locked into a specific historical situation, he had much to say, and even more, to show in his dealings with people and particular events, which address our own complex circumstances. In this way, the two series complement each other- the first, mapping the journey to Gandhi, and the second, providing an activity of recall which paradoxically brings Gandhi into today's world. The two sets of sketches are companion volumes to the author's six books about Gandhi's life and thought which show how a writer, whose basic discipline was philosophy, moved to historical studies, and found in Gandhi a key not only to India but to events elsewhere in the world. The general reader will also find in the sketches a gallery of personalities she met in different countries who are memorable in themselves.
