About this book


This is the first book in English to provide a truly comprehensive view of Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso ), a major guerilla movement in Peru. Sendero 's Maoist principles first begin in the 1960s with a small band of supporters and no attention from the outside world, but later emerged as the most radical and dogmatic expression of Marxist revolution in the Hemisphere .
