Synopsis: 
This book, written by a member of the Communist Party is a brief account of the rise and fall of the RSS in Kerala. The book traces the multi-faceted approach of physical violence and an ideological offensive which the organisation used to make in-roads into a largely Communist dominated voter base. The book also traces the change in the approach of the Communist party which involved greater solidarity with Muslims, Christians and Dalits in a unified attempt to repel the repeated attacks of the proponents of cultural nationalism.
