India's 'Maoist movement', erupting in the village of Naxalbari in 1967, claims to struggle for the rights of exloited tribal people and poor peasants.
There is much more than Maoism to this story. Drawing on rich veins of scholarship and journalism, this book brings together diverse perspectives on a bloodly struggle.Its two dozen contributors analyze and reflect on
* Maoist ideas, organizations and history across South Asia
* social and economic conditions in regions of Maoist strength
* challenges facing Indian governments
* differing views on the nature and future of the struggles
Maps drawn especially for More than Maoism, and pictures by leading photographers, enhance a book that will be read with interest and profit by anyone keen to understand the head- spinning social and economic changes that unsettle South Asia.
