Sub titel: Nepal's Maoist Movement and the Democratic Transition
Kings to Comrades takes a unique look at one of the most successful revolutions of the twenty-first century: the Maoist revolution in Nepal. Nishchal Basnyat incorporates rare interviews with Nepal's Maoist leaders and newly discovered documentary evidence that help us better understand the Maoist war in Nepal and its outcome. In an accessible style, Basnyat explores the causes of the Maoist revolution and the characteristics of the decade-long war. He goes on to analyse the fascinating process by which the rebels were transformed into a political party and ultimately democratised. This book will provide invaluable material for anyone studying Nepal as well as students of communist movements, third-world revolutions and rebel-to-party transformations.
