This chapter studies Alexander's travels abroad, which eventually led him to his meeting with Mahatma Gandhi, and starts with a section on Alexander's lectureship on international studies at Woodbrooke. It introduces three individuals who played important roles in Alexander's life: Fritz Berber, Willi Schubert and Reginald Reynolds. The next section looks at Alexander's interest in the different attempts to control the traffic of narcotics, most especially opium. Finally, the chapter considers Alexander's meeting with Gandhi and the conferences in Geneva that he attended.
