Gandhi's List of Social Sins: Lessons in Truth by Frank Woolever reminds us of seven evils, from the first, "Wealth without Work," to the last, "Politics without Principle," that Gandhi used to show how social structures can indeed lead to sin. Devoting a chapter to each sin, Woolever weaves the Mahatma's teachings and life together with his own peacemaking attempts in the US.
