This nonfiction chapter book explores the work and legacy of Mohandas Gandhi through fifteen profiles of activists who chose nonviolent resistance as the path to change. The book focuses not so much on peacemakers as on heroic individuals who were in direct physical danger and chose to respond with nonviolence. The profiles include such well-known figures as Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Csar Chavez, as well as leaders who may be less familiar, such as Charles Perkins, Aung San Suu Kyi, and Wangari Maathai.
