About the Book

Though Andhra Pradesh occupies a major place in the Maoist movement, a commensurate and comprehensive account on the origin and growth of the movement is not available. There has been a felt need for such a comprehensive narration of the multi-layered movement for a long time. This volume of collected essays chronicling various aspects of the Maoist movement in the state is a step in the direction of developing such a work.

N. Venugopal has been an observer of the movement since 1970. A poet, literary critic, translator, social scientist, journalist and public speaker, he published 15 original books in Telegu and as many translations from English into Telegu, besides editing a number of volumes. He is currently editor of Veekshanam, Telegu Monthly Journal of Political Economy and Society, Hyderabad
