About the Book
An armed struggle in the world’s largest democracy, subjected to severe state repression ever experienced in the land of Buddha and Gandhi, the Naxalite movement, still after four decades of its inception, continues to haunt the Indian state. A modern phoenix, it has arisen from its devastation to ashes into ‘the greatest internal security threat for the country’ as observed by Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Indian Prime Minister.
This anthology consists of thirty-three original and unpublished research papers written by scholars from India and abroad from various discursive positions.
This volume will cater to the needs of the general readers, government policy-makers, social activists and research students of social science.
