Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first major work to be published which analyses the phenomenon of revolutions based on a Maoist model, namely Thailand, the Philippines, Peru and Sri Lanka. Unlike the Vietnamese Communists, however, all these insurgencies modelled on Mao have failed, having been successfully contained by their governments. The question is how did the world's strongest power - America - fail where Third World governments have succeeded? The author seeks to provide the answers in order to learn not only about the Maoist 'people's war' and counter-insurgency, but also to identify the factors which contribute to a revolution.

Book News Annotation:

A comparative analysis of Maoist or "people's wars" since the American defeat and departure from Vietnam in 1975. It combines academic research with eye-witness accounts to examine similar prolonged, post- Vietnam insurgencies, including Thailand, the Philippines, Peru, and Sri Lanka. Unlike Vietnam, however, these insurgencies failed, and Marks is particularly interested in how the world's strongest power failed where Third World governments have succeeded. Distributed by ISBS.
