The Naxalites and their Ideology

Rabindra Ray (Author)
Synopsis This book is a comprehensive sociological analysis of the Naxal movement that situates it within the contexts of Bengali society, strains of Indian communism, and the peasantry. Ray’s interpretation of Naxalism distinguishes between the movement’s ideological position and its actions. He further relates Naxal ideology to that of Nietzsche and the philosophical tradition of Nihilism for a vivid portrayal of the social and cultural heritage of Naxalism.
