How to Observe Morals and Manners is a sociological treatise on methods of observing manners and morals written by Harriet Martineau in 1837 8 after a tour of America She stated that she wasn t looking for fodder for a book, but also privately remarked that I am tired of being kept floundering among the details which are all a Hall and a Trollope who wrote Domestic Manners of the Americans can bring away As opposed to Victorian prescriptive handbooks of how societies ought to behave, Martineau focuses on observing locals on their own terms and emphasizes the need to accept cultural relativism of other people....

The Kingdom of God is Within You Reviews
I think the content of the book its interesting, there is not doubt why it inspired so many people in the world. Nevertheless, the printing its ridiculously small, my eyes get exhausted each time I try to read it. I decided to buy this copy because of the price and honestly I did not want to invest a lot of money in a book that basically emphasise the principles of christianity. Anyhow, If you are interested in the grassroot of non-violent movements I would recommend to buy it but definetly invest in a different edition where your eyes are able to understand the letters without the need of useing a loupe.
Thank you Leo Tolstoy for giving the world such a profound gift. This book was banned in Tolstoy's homeland, Russia, because it was considered revolutionary, it inspired Mohandas Ghandi to align his life with the Truth at any cost, and with the insanely universal dependence by nation states upon the military option, this book remains as relevant as it was on the day it was published in 1894.Admittedly, this is not a quick read. At times, one can feel bogged down in Tolstoy's meticulous arguments. But taken as a whole, it is an inspired and inspiring work which will without fail prod the attentive reader to scrutinize one's life -- beliefs AND actions.I believe this book will resurface time and again in the non-violent mass movements of the coming century. Read it. Absorb it. Assimilate it. The truth as revealed in this book will indeed set us all free!
Once I began this book, I could not put it down. It spoke to my heart. Is peace possible on this earth? Of course! We just have to learn to accept one another, love one another unconditionally, give up war and violence. Piece of cake, right? I long for enough people to wake up to the principles set forth by Tolstoy in order to bring a serenity back to the peoples of this good earth. We all desire peace, but are we willing to give up our selfish desires to achieve it? If so, then live peace, spread peace, share peace, BE peace. Let the world know it can be done. Magnificent masterpiece by Tolstoy.
First I couldn't put it down! I never expected it to catch and hold me with such power! It is a book that can change your thinking on many, many things, ie. governments, armies, organized religeon, land owners, employers etc.Never have I read a more practical and down to earth reason for the use of nonviolent protest in correcting social ills. It works !He loved Christ! I had to stop reading and reread Christ's "Sermon On the Mount" from the book of Matthew to fully grasp what Tolstoy was saying. The thought of never striking back no matter what someone else does to you has never been a part of my personality....up to now. It makes so much sence! Can I do it? It's worth trying and worth telling why.Great, great book. The fact that it was written over 100 years ago doesn't lessen its freshness. The book is timeless. Anyone interested in truth will love it. You will be challenged.
This is one of the two books which influenced the greatest thinker of this century Mahatma Gandhi. Mr.manindar singh, if you want to buy this book, i think amazon.com has international delivery also. check it out
Reading this book can, hopefully, change how persons think about truth and non-violence. No doubt Gandhi was overwhelmed by it (and tried to practise it). They lived in the same time. If everyone practices even an iota of the observations and yearning for truth from this book, the world would be a better place to live in. Definitely recommended for all who seek the Truth and are willing to try.
being in India I dont know how to buy this book. I am willing to pay the price of the book. maninder singh
