This course, as an introduction to Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, was originally created by the comrades of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) as an educational tool for their own cadres. As such there are some references, terms, etc., which would be well known in India, less so in other parts of the world. Also, as this was an ideological aid to their particular struggle the emphasis is on the application of the principles of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism to the Indian context. That’s not a failing. Revolutionary theory has to be adapted to the specific circumstances, location and era. What it does mean is that for revolutionaries in other parts of the world some of the emphasis might have to change.
