With direct access to the top Maoist leadership, Rahul Pandita provides an authoritative
account of how a handful of men and women, who believed in the idea of revolution, entered
Bastar in Central India in 1980 and created a powerful movement that New Delhi now
terms as India’s biggest internal security threat. It traces the circumstances due to which the
Maoist movement entrenched itself in about IO states of India, carrying out deadly attacks
against the Indian establishment in the name of the poor and the marginalised. It offers rare
insight into the lives of Maoist guerrillas and also of the Adivasi tribals living in the Red zone.
Based on extensive on ground reportage and exhaustive interviews with Maoist leaders
including their supreme commander Ganapathi, Kobad Ghandy and others who are jailed
or have been killed in police encounters, this book is a combination of firsthand story telling
and intrepid analysis.
