Leo Tolstoy: The Kingdom of God is Within You

3.99

The Kingdom of God is Within You has become one of the most widely read and influential books ever written.  

Banned in Russia for years, published in hundreds of editions, and translated into virtually every modern language, it has not been out of print since 1894.

No less a figure than Mahatma Gandhi himself has acknowledged that it provided the inspiration to denounce violent revolution, and find his inner divinity for the strength to effect social change.

In Gandhi's words: “Tolstoy's The Kingdom of God is Within You overwhelmed me. Before the independent thinking, profound morality and truthfulness of this book, all the books given me seemed to pale into insignificance.”


* Contains extended historical context and a critical essay: Leo Tolstoy: A Cultural and Historical Perspective, by Ilyá Tolstoy.

The Kingdom of God is Within You is one of the most provocative anti-establishment and anti-authoritarian pieces of literature ever written. Tolstoy’s philosophy of nonviolent resistance had a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth-century figures as Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

— Lawrence Adelman

The appearance of this sumptuously produced twenty-first century edition of The Kingdom of God is Within You will delight the countless admirers of Leo Tolstoy.
