Biografia breu
Studied with Reinhold Niebuhr at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, graduating with M.Div. in 1965. Two years in the Frontier Intern program in India, 1965-1967, set him on the path to studying religion in south Asia and around the world. Now an expert on religious violence, conflict resolution, and South Asian religion and politics, Juergensmeyer has published more than two hundred articles and twenty books.



Gandhi's Way is a primer of Mahatma Gandhi's principles of moral action and conflict resolution. In it one finds a straightforward, step-by-step approach that can be used in any conflict: at home; in business; and in local, national, or international arenas. The book sets out Gandhi's basic methods and illustrates them with practical examples to show how parties can rise above self-interest to find resolutions that are beneficial and satisfying to all."--BOOK JACKET.

I haven't quite finished this book yet, but I already strongly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about religious terrorism.

This book is an excellent reminder that it is not ONE single group or person committing violent acts in the name of a religion, and that it is unhelpful and futile to paint the entire religion with a bad brush because of these fringe extremists.… (més)

A great review of Gandhi's ideas. Contrary to what many think, Gandhi was a fighter. He thought fighting was the way to find the best solution, or highest truth, and believed one should never avoid a fight. But since fighting is to achieve a better overall outcome, it must be done the right way. This book makes Gandhi accessible and usable. All the basic questions Ury, Eddy and the modern conflict resolution theories ask are here, and posed in the comprehensive context of Ganhi's view. I love this book.… (més)
