Anybody care to expound/pontificate on the historical relationship between
Althusser(ianism) and Maoism during the 60s and/or 70s?
I've read a few references online to certain aspects of Althusser's theories
being popular amongst Maoist students at the time. Mostly these are just
hints, and don't go into any detail. What specifically did they resonate
with in Althusser's material?
Any of you old veterans want to have a go at it?
