About this title

Synopsis:

The Naxilite movement is one of the important components in the political spectrum in India. At one stage, the 'spring thunder' caused tremors in practically all the states of the Union and posed a serious challenge even to the democratic structure. The Idealists saw in it the beginning of a new world, a new socio-economic order. But soon sordid politics took over. The movement, however continues to have a large support base because of the intellectual appeal of its ideology. It has survived more than a quarter century of onslaught by the security forces - without any external support, unlike the Punjab terrorism and Kashmir militancy. The Movement has developed an inherent strength. The present book is the only one of its kind. It covers all the important developments from the inception of the Movement in 1967 to the present day in historical sweep.

About the Author:

Prakash Singh has been a very distinguished officer of the Indian Police Service. He was Police Chief of the most populous state of the Indian Union, Uttar Pradesh, and commanded the largest paramilitary force of the world, the Border Security Force. He contributed to combating the insurgency in Nagaland and stemming the tide of terrorism in the Punjab. He also served in Kashmir and led the Assam Police in its fight against the ULFA. The Government of India, in recognition of his outstanding services to national security, awarded him the 'Padma Shree' in 1991.
