Gandhi and the Unspeakable, America's Forgotten Founders

Chuck Morse Speaks

Gandhi and the Unspeakable, America's Forgotten Founders

Chuck and Patrick are joined by James Douglas, author of Gandhi and the Unspeakable.

A slim, elegant volume containing explosive insight into who conspired to assassinate the father of modern nonviolence and why. . . No other contemporary writer is exposing the mechanics of assassination as methodically and bravely as Douglass. But because he is a Catholic scholar and activist most well-known for his writings on nonviolence and suffering, this book is more than a fresh look at historical circumstances: it s spiritual spelunking into the depravity of unchecked political power. -- --Publisher's Weekly.

In the second hour we are joined by Mark David Hall.
