In the aftermath of the global economic crisis, we live in a world where people are increasingly looking for the 'spaces of hope' which may point the way to a more equitable world. In this search, Euro-American attention has focused on radical uprisings of people, such as the Arab Spring or the Occupy movement, that are spatially close to us. In fact, in much of the post-colonial world long-standing armed movements for revolutionary change are very much alive. This important book provides an empirically grounded of a number of these movements, including the Maoists in India and Nepal, the Communist Party of the Philippines, Frelimo in Mozambique, Sendero Luminoso in Peru, the Sandinistas in Nicaragua as well as FARC-EP in Colombia. Written by commentators who have spent extensive time living amidst, working with and closely following the movements that they focus on, Emancipatory Politics and Armed Struggle in the World Today provides a critical and insightful guide to the issues surrounding armed resistance in a postcolonial, post-crisis world.
