A new book by K.V. Thomas, published by SAGE
Left-Wing Extremism and Human Rights unfolds a mosaic of social issues, especially of the weaker and marginalized section, closely intertwined with internal security.
Based on an empirical study of the Left-Wing Extremism (LWE) movement in Andhra Pradesh, once the citadel of LWE, it offers a deep analysis of the growth and consolidation of LWE in India. It also studies the profiles and roles of NGOs in promoting rights for which specific case studies have been undertaken.
As LWE and counter-extremist operations have become the major sources of serious human-rights violations in the country, the pan-Indian scenario of the movement bringing out its genesis, organizational structure, etc., have been elaborately dealt with in this book.
