As the occupy movement and protests have blossomed around the world, there has been new interest in the work of Mahatma Gandhi, who championed nonviolent resistance during the struggle for Indian Independence. But while Gandhi’s name has often been invoked, from Tahrir Square to Zuccotti Park, few have actually gone back to examine what Gandhi believed about the relationship between nonviolence, resistance and courage. Norman Finkelstein has read deeply in Gandhi’s collected writings as part of his exploration of how the longstanding conflict between Israelis and Palestinians might be brought to an end. He has found that some of what we think we know about Gandhi’s views is incomplete, if not incorrect. Finkelstein’s new book is an attempt to clearly lay out the basic principles of Gandhi’s approach. A fuller appreciation of Gandhi’s message will be of interest to those concerned about the Middle East as well as the more general struggle for peace and social justice worldwide. Norman Finkelstein received his doctorate in 1988 from the Department of Politics at Princeton University. He is the author of six books besides this one on Gandhi.

Convocation is an annual event that brings together the incoming class, the president, provost, faculty, and various members of the administration, including the Board of Trustees, to recognize the beginning of a new academic year. It is celebrated at most colleges and universities as a means of both welcoming new students to the campus and to higher education, and to challenge students to make the most of the university experience.
