GANDHI’S FOOTSTEPS: Mark Kurlansky.
IAN SINCLAIR talks to draft-resisting author MARK KURLANSKY about the history of non-violence.
WHAT, I wonder, inspired Mark Kurlansky, the author of a diverse range of books such as Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World and The Basque History of the World, to write Nonviolence: The History of a Dangerous Idea?
“I very much believe in the importance of political activism and the moral obligation to speak out,” Kurlansky tells the Star.
This belief led him to actively resist the draft during the Vietnam war.
