30th August – Booklaunch!
We will be holding an online book launch of our next two titles on the 30th August
Like Ho Chi Minh! Like Che Guevara! is the culmination of a lifetime of research and writing about the Ethiopian communist movement in the 1960s and 1970s. Ian Scott Horst’s magnum opus is an historical treasure trove of first hand accounts and narratives from the actors themselves documenting the heady, complicated and ultimately tragic events of one of the world’s least understood Maoist revolutions.
Critiquing Brahmanism – A Collection of Essays was written by K. Murali (Ajith) during the time he spent imprisoned in Yerwada Central Prison in Maharashtra India. Born out of the necessity to understand, confront and counter Brahmanism, Ajith lays bare Brahmanism’s continued role as an ideological linchpin of the Indian ruling class in trying to beat back India’s oppressed masses from seizing and controlling their own destiny. While India’s class, caste structures and religion are specific to its conditions, Critiquing Brahmanism is also of great relevance to understanding the role of idealism in the suppression of the toiling masses.
Hosted by J. Moufawad Paul, activist and author of numerous books on Maoist philosophy, including The Communist Necessity, Continuity and Rupture, and Critique of Maoist Reason.
