Recently in Britain three women were rescued from a house where they claim they were held captive for 30 years. The couple who own the house are accused of “domestic slavery”. They are also reported to be leaders of a tiny Maoist sect, pledging cult-like allegiance to the former Chinese dictator. Evan Smith of Flinders University examines the strange world of radical Maoist politics in 1970s Britain in order to understand how this situation came about in this article for The Conversation UK. (1100 Words) - By Evan Smith, Flinders University
