'Gandhi and the Unspeakable' – New Insight About Gandhi's Assassination From Author of 'JFK and the Unspeakable'

JFK and the Unspeakable, Why He Died and Why it Matters by James Douglass is perhaps the most important book ever written on JFK and his murder. Douglas states "We have no evidence as to who in the military-industrial complex may have given the order to assassinate President Kennedy. That the order was carried out by the Central Intelligence Agency is obvious. The CIA’s fingerprints are all over the crime and the events leading up to it." Now Douglass has a new book out on Ghandhi - Ghandhi and the Unspeakable.
From James W. Douglass, the bestselling author of JFK and the Unspeakable (Orbis 2010), Ghandhi and the Unspeakable shines new light on the untimely death of Mohandas Gandhi. Following the theme of his study about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Mr. Douglass shows how the people who conspired to kill Gandhi hoped to destroy a compelling vision of peace, nonviolence and reconciliation. By tracing the story of Gandhi's early "experiments with truth" in South Africa, Mr. Douglass shows how Gandhi confronted and overcame the fear of death. He also explains why, as with the case of JFK's death, this story matters today and what can be learned from Gandhi's truth and its opposition to the powers of his time. Mr. Douglass is a scholar and peace activist. His book about the JFK assassination is widely acclaimed by historians and political scientists as one of the most important books written about the subject.
