Ostergaard on Gandhian nonviolence: article now online

The Satyagraha Foundation have made available online a key article by anarcho-pacifist Geoffrey Ostergaard: Gandhian Nonviolence: Moral Principle or Political Technique.  The article was originally published in . T. PATIL, New Dimensions and Perspectives in Gandhism. New Delhi: Inter-India Publications, 1989.

Geoffrey Ostergaard’s academic life was centred on Birmingham University, but he was a Trustee of Commonweal Library.  His Archive is thus in Special Collections.  It is full of insight into Indian politics and University life, as well as his ideas about anarchism.  The collection was partially catalogued by the PaxCat Project though there is further work to be done before we can make it easily available.   We wrote about the Archive in this earlier post.
