Lacerating Memories

Remembering Revolution: Gender, Violence, and Subjectivity in India's Naxalbari Movement by Srila Roy (New Delhi: Oxford University Press), 2012; pp ix + 252, Rs 725.

In the absence of much literature in English analysing the gender issues in the Naxalite/Maoist movement in mainstream publishing, Srila Roy’s Remembering Revolution: Gender, Violence, and Subjectivity in India’s Naxalbari Movement is an intriguing text, especially since it uses oral history writing and memory studies as its theoretical tools in discussing urban middle-class women’s agency and victimhood in the Naxalbari movement in West Bengal in the 1960s and 1970s.
