Liberation, the central organ of the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist), is a monthly in its thirty-fifth year of publication. The first issue of the magazine came out at the height of the Naxalbari movement in November 1967. For a brief period in the early seventies the magazine could not be published due to severe state repression on the Party. The magazine's publication has been regular since 1976, first as a quarterly, and since late eighties as a monthly.
Liberation is the ideological-political organ of the Party reflecting the theory and practice of the revolutionary left in India. Besides reporting on official Party positions, the magazine carries columns for discussion and debates and publishes write-ups by many prominent non-Party progressives in India.
Liberation offers you regular commentaries and features on topical political issues in India, Marxist analyses of major international and national events and trends, and reports on the multifarious struggles and activities of the CPI(ML) and its mass organisations. It regularly covers contemporary discussions and debates on Marxism and its concrete application in Indian conditions. Liberation is the foremost champion of revolutionary Marxism-Leninism against social-democratic opportunism in India. It provides regular reviews of books and films.
Liberation generates fresh information through left networks that is not usually available in other news sources. With is vast network of correspondents from different states of India, including remote rural regions, it brings firsthand accounts of major struggles, atrocities, and other significant socio-political developments. Its social investigation column frequently carries reports of rural investigation. It is Liberation's conscious endeavour to offer write-ups in a reader-friendly style shorn of cliche and stereotyped abstractions.
to the hardcopy of the magazine brings you nine regular issues plus one annual number covering March-May. Back issues of the magazine hard copies from 1994 (except a few numbers) are available for sale.
