Written by Adele Balasingham, who has lived and worked in India and Sri Lanka for than twenty years with the LTTE, the 400-page book "will be of interest to all those who want to study the inside story of the Tamil resistance movement," Fairmax Publishing Ltd. said.

"Written in a semi-autobiographical, historical style, the [book] graphically surveys important events, episodes and turning points in the last two decadesÍ of the Tamil freedom struggle [and] provides a penetrating internal study of the armed resistance by the Tamil Tiger movement" the statement, emailed to TamilNet Monday said.

Mrs. Balasingham, a sociologist, political activist and writer, is married to Mr. Anton Balasingham, the LTTE's theoretician and chief negotiator. She has also published books on the dowry system amongst the Jaffna society and on the LTTE women fighters.
