9780745323404: Dispatches From the People's War in Nepal

'This unique, intimate look into the People's War in Nepal provides invaluable background to the world's most vigorous Maoist movement, and insight into the theory and practice underlying contemporary Maoism elsewhere in South Asia and globally.' Gary Leupp, Professor of History at Tufts University and Coordinator of the Asian Studies Program 'In her dispatches from the ongoing revolutionary war in Nepal, where she was the first, and longest-staying, foreign journalist to report from the Maoist-held areas, Li Onesto keeps up the committed, conscientious revolutionary journalism of John Reed, George Orwell, and Agnes Smedley. . . . Probably the best, if not the only, account of how the Maoists built their organization, and of how they operate and govern.' Stephen Mikesell, author of Class, State and Struggle in Nepal: Writings 1989-1995 'This lively, exciting and enlightening presentation of the Maoist insurgency in Nepal will help people to understand the real state of affairs behind the "People's War".'

About the Author:

As a correspondent for the Revolutionary Worker newspaper, Li Onesto was the first foreign journalist to travel deep into the guerrilla zones of Nepal in 1999. Her interview with Prachanda, the head of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), has been circulated internationally - translated into Nepali, Spanish, Italian, French, Hindi, German, Pashtun (in Afghanistan), and Chinese. Onesto's photography show, "The People's War in Nepal: Faces from a Hidden War" has been on display in several cities in the U.S. and she continues to study, write and lecture about the developing situation in Nepal.

Review:

'This is a lively, exciting and enlightening presentation of the true portrait of the Maoist insurgency in Nepal' -- Padma Ratna Tuladhar, independent left leader, senior human rights leader and one of the facilitators in the peace talks between His Majesty's Government of Nepal and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) 'Probably the best, if not only, account of how the Maoists built their organisation and movement, and of how they operate and govern' -- Stephen Mikesell, author of Class, State and Struggle in Nepal: Writings 1989-1995 'Invaluable background to the world's most vigorous Maoist movement, and insight into the theory and practice underlying contemporary Maoism elsewhere in South Asia and globally' -- Gary Leupp, professor of history at Tufts University and Coordinator of the Asian Studies Program
