This book really demonstrates how you can incorporate non-violence into every aspect of your daily life. This brought me to a new sense of understanding about the world, its people and our conflicts, and how petty ones can be avoided and not escalated.
Particularly relevant is how Khan came from the Pathans, or tribe with a reputation of violence which covers much of Afghanistan, and so much in the news today. Khan however raised history's first "non-violent army" of 100,000 men form the ruthless Pathan tradition, and who through non-violent means courageously stood up unarmed against injustice.
Read this book, it is truly outstanding, and preferably after having read "Gandhi The Man" by the same author - Eknath Easwaran.

Most people will have heard of Gandhi but Badshah Khan less so, he showed that a warrior like tribal people who embraced Islam could still be completely non-violent and achivee their aims. This is his story and it is humbling the great man's dignity, humanity and belief, with a heart as big as any with compassion for all we could learn so much from him and ais great life.

...and the historically important, positive and affirmative social movement he was a part of.

This is an awesome book and more people should read it. Highly, highly, highly recommend. It has significant historical and practical relevance to our world today.

This book will deepen your understanding of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. And give you a sense of both realism and hope. Peace takes dedication and hard work, and setbacks are frequent, but real accomplishments are possible.

Nonviolence is the future.
All peace loving followers of Islam should take a lead from Badshah Khan, the true champion of non violence .
I wish this book can be translated in other languages and distributed free in all those countries which are marred with religious violence.

Despite being brought up in Pakistan, his is a name that has been erased from our history books. I was totally humbled after reading about him, and felt amazement, (being pathan myself) that he managed to raise this unarmed army, and the oath of non violence he made them take. Bought several copies to distribute to friends and family. Inspirational

it is more like a story books than a fact book with guild-line to learn about non-violent resistance.
