History & Politics

Maoist Movement and Naxalism is the talk of the day, in all circles. Basically an ideological force, though many people may always disagree with it, in ideology and practice Maoism, also known as Mao Zedong Thought, is a political theory, derived from the teachings of the Chinese political leader, Mao Zedong. Its followers, known as Maoists, consider it as an anti-Revisionist form of Marxism-Leninism. As its basic approach, Maoism sees the agrarian peasantry, rather than the working class, as the key dynamic force, which can fundamentally transform capitalist capitalist society, into a socialist society. In India, the Communist Party of India (Maoist) is a Maoist political party, which aims to overthrow the government. This book, a study with a difference, is an asset for all scholars, researchers and general readers.
