This is a story about the Communist Party of the Philippines (CCP) from its founding in 1968 to its devastating splits in the early 1990s. Weekley asks why the CCP was not able to adjust to the changed political condition of EDSA, when its necessary to do so. Her answers refer to the role of theory and practice in the CCP has often been uneasy, because in no more than 20 years, the Party officially reviewed and altered its original strategy only once in 1974. Even leading intellectuals did not address the full implications of the "adjustments" they had been making to CCP theory along the way, until it was too late. Weekley shows how this severely hindered efforts to redefine the CCP's place in post-dictatorship politics. Using official and unofficial CCP documents, and information from her indepth interviews with ranking party cadres (former and present), Weekley tells a story that is critical of and yet symphatetic with the dilemmas of the CCP.

Weekley is Research Fellow at the Institute of Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, and Associate Research Fellow at the Center for Historical Analysis, Rutgers University, New Jersey.
