Dilemmas of Third World Communism is a study of the Indonesian Communist Party that aims to answer more general questions about the difficulties, and even defeats, encountered by so many left-wing movements in the Third World. Olle Tornquist argues that one fundamental reason for the Indonesian military's successful destruction of the Party lay in the Party's failure to analyze the nature of the post-colonial capitalist society that was emerging.
