2003 Campus Community Book Project Suggestions


Campus Community Book Project 2003
Dedicated to the memory of Raba Gunasekara.

Book CoverThe selection for UC Davis Campus Community Book Project for 2003 is, "Gandhi's Way: A Handbook of Conflict Resolution," by Mark Juergensmeyer. Juergensmeyer introduces Mahatma Gandhi's principles of moral action and conflict resolution. He offers a straightforward, step-by-step approach that can be used in any conflict—at home or at work; in local, national, or international arenas. Juergensmeyer also sets out Gandhi's basic methods (adapted by others, notably Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) and illustrates them with practical examples to show how parties at odds can rise above a narrow view of self-interest to find resolutions that are satisfying and beneficial to all involved.

We encourage all members of our community—undergraduate and graduate students, staff, faculty, and administrators—to read the book and to participate in a number of campus events and programs related to the book. We believe this book provides a guide for respectful and constructive dialogue on conflicting ideologies, values and perspectives within our multicultural environment that will be offered in the fall of 2003.
