About the Book: The Sison Reader Series Book 6 covers the period of 2000 to 2021 in continuity with Book 5 which covers the period of 1969 to 1999. The two books manifest the outstanding role of the Communist Party of the Philippines as one of the proletarian revolutionary parties of the world successfully leading the people's democratic revolution through protracted people's war under the theoretical guidance of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. The CPP enjoys high prestige as a torch-bearer of the world proletarian-socialist revolution. The resurgence of this revolution is being ushered in by the anti-imperialist and democratic mass struggles all over the world and by the intensification of all major contradictions: between labor and capital; between the imperialist powers and the oppressed peoples and nations; among the imperialist powers themselves; and the US and China as the chief imperialist rivals.

About the Author: Jose Maria Sison led the reestablishment of the Communist Party of the Philippines in 1968 as well as the founding of the New People's Army in 1969 and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines in 1973. He is now among the world's most outstanding theoreticians in Marxism-Lenininism-Maoism. He continues to do research and write on Philippine and global issues as a public intellectual.
