Weaving through the nostalgic reflections of former Bengali Naxalites; the resurgence of ancestral conflicts in the spread of the Maoists in the hills of western Nepal; the disillusionments of the Dalits of central Bihar in the policies of the cadres; the book offers insights into different stages of mobilisation and transformation into what are, were or may become, revolutionary strongholds.
