Description

No Free Left is a critical examination of the past of Indian Communism and an assessment of its future.

Most literature on Indian communism feels claustrophobic. It assumes that the communist movement lives on a detached landscape its programme and political judgments are adjudged against a divine standard. A history of communism cannot be written, Gramsci said, without writing a “general history of a country.” Vijay Prashad does exactly that.

No Free Left stays alive to the details of the present while drawing out the long term dynamic, combining a rich historical survey with acute political analysis of the present. It is a compelling work for students of Indian politics. For activists of the Left, it is indispensable reading. Above all, it is a live work, an invitation to debate and discussion.
