In this ground-breaking study, based on valuable field data, Edward Duyker examines the historical roots of the Santal participation in the Naxalite movement; discusses the implications of the Naxalite use of traditional weapons and forms of tribal warfare; describes the use of oral tradition to incite revolutionary fervor; and analyzes the role of clan and kinship in determining Santal participation in the movement.
