Historically interesting. Good texture and context of the history behind I've actually read very little by Gandhi, and it's interesting to experience his thoughts in his own words. Like The Communist Manifesto, one wonders what the author would make of the world of today... which is somewhat evolved from the inequities of their time, but also very much the same in many regards.

Gandhi says, for example, that the officials of the Raj (Brit colonial govt) should be required to ride Third Class, with the rest of the masses, so that conditions of travel would improved. The Mahatma really doesn't like 'free trade' in any form. (I wonder what he would make of the call centers and tech explosion of India today.)
