Taking its name from a worker uprising in the tea gardens in the north Bengal countryside near Naxalbari in 1967, the Naxalite movement has become synonymous with communist revolutionary terrorism. This volume explores the movement and its ideology, discussing the Naxalites within the contexts of Bengali society, the varieties of Indian party communism, and the Indian peasantry and urban middle classes.
