"The Eureka Rebellion was a rebellion in 1854, instigated by gold miners in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia, who revolted against the colonial authority of the United Kingdom. The Battle of the Eureka Stockade, by which the rebellion is popularly known, was fought between miners and the colonial forces of Australia on 3 December 1854 at Eureka Lead and named for the stockade structure erected by miners during the conflict.The rebellion resulted in the deaths of at least 27 people, the majority of whom were rebels. The rebellion was the culmination of a period of civil disobedience in the Ballarat region during the Victorian gold rush with miners objecting to the expense of a miner's licence, taxation via the licence without representation and the actions of the government, the police and military. The local rebellion grew from a Ballarat Reform League movement and culminated in the erection by the rebels of a crude battlement and a swift and deadly siege by colonial forces. Mass public support for the captured rebels in the colony's capital of Melbourne when they were placed on trial resulted in the introduction of the Electoral Act 1856, which mandated full white male suffrage for elections for the lower house in the Victorian parliament, the second instituted act of political democracy in Australia.[3] As such, the Eureka Rebellion is controversially identified with the birth of democracy in Australia and interpreted by some as a political revolt.

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American pastor, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. The author wrote: "I know, better than most of its readers will, the extent to which this biogralphy fails. I have tried to be thorough and objective but also empathetic, without once bothering, however, to consider the racial or ideological advantages or disadvantages of the facts or thoughts that this work contains. There are people, back and white, who will argue that objectivity is a pose, a defense, that some middle-class blacks just naturally strike up. For them, this book's only value will be like that of an enemy's captured munitions depot. Such people were the first to attack Martin King for his objectivity, and this is pretty good company for one of his biograhers. Criticisms of a nonpartisan nature are a much more serious matter. There will be a fair number of these, I suspect. It is a comfort to me, if not an adequate defense against them, that my convictions about the serious limitations of instant history have not dissipated with the writing of this biography.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, known as the Mahatma all over the world, was a great leader endowed with a Spiritual yearning for truth. The quintessence of his Philosophy of life was the realization of Satya [truth] and Ahimsa [nonviolence] . His Purpose of life was as he says, "To achieve self- realization, to see God Face to face, to obtain Moksha [Salvation]." But his approach was different from that of other seekers. His endeavours for self-realization were through strict observance of truth. He moulded his actions on the basis of truth, only the Truth that he perceived within. The word truth ordinarily connotes not to tell lies. But for Gandhi it implied much more. Even hiding the truth from someone was deemed as untruth by him. He considered that the narrow implication of the term had belied its magnitude. Defining truth he writes. "The root of Satya [truth] lies in Sat" Gandhi was born to serve humanity through Satya. He was a practical man; he chose the path of practice and the path of renunciation of the Fruits of action. Absolute Faith in God and surrender to His Will became his object of observance [Niyam] and the constant thought of the truth - practice [Abhyas Yoga]. His mind was always occupied with truth in all walks of life - personal, social or political. In this volume there is a collection of articles by eminent Gandhian scholars and subject-specialists from India and abroad who, through their valuable contributions, have thrown light on various aspects of Gandhian philosophy and thoughts, that are fully within the scope of Satya, and their relevance in the Twenty-First Century. No doubt this volume, edited with extra care by universally renowned Gandhian scholar Dr. Ravindra Kumar, will add to the Knowledge of those interested in Mahatma Gandhi`s life, Views and works.
