Vanguard — Official Publication of the
Communist Party of India (M-L) People’s War


      Vanguard, or the Voice of the Vanguard, was the official publication of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) People’s War. The first issue was in March 1983. It appeared on nearly a monthly schedule through 1985. At that point its publication had to be suspended for 5 years. In May-June 1991 publication was resumed, and it appeared somewhat irregularly thereafter until the CPI(M-L)PW merged in late 2004 with the Maoist Communist Centre of India to form the present Communist Party of India (Maoist).

      Even when Vanguard was being published it was quite difficult to obtain because of the oppressive attempts of the Indian government to prevent its circulation. Thus after a number of years it is extremely difficult to locate all the published issues, and sometimes the issues posted here are missing some pages or sections (sometimes marked with a string of red X's). If anyone has access to issues (or parts of issues) which are not available below (or which are available in the original hardcopy or in the better PDF format) please contact us so that we can post them here.

      Recently some revolutionaries in India scanned in many of the issues of this important publication and made them available for posting. These issues are in Microsoft Word format. Be forewarned that there are quite a few uncorrected scanning errors and gaps in various places, but generally these problems do not prevent the comprehension of the original articles.
