Product Details

Praise

“Mobilizing lessons from a non-Western context to unpack the contested meanings of socialism and democracy … Wang reminds us that China’s socialist legacy, much like its long-standing participation in anti-imperialist struggles in the Global South, is not to be forgotten. Instead, it should be rigorously analyzed and critically re-appropriated as a means to reshape the contours of global justice.”
—Fan Yang, Socialism and Democracy

“Wang’s intervention into both Chinese- and English-language histories of China is both politically charged and theoretically rich, exploring the possibilities for equality and justice that were created and then suppressed during this period in China’s recent past.”
—Zach Smith, Education About Asia

Praise for Wang Hui:

“A central figure among a group of writers and academics known collectively as the New Left.”
New York Times Magazine

“One of China’s leading historians and most interesting and influential public intellectuals.” —Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Los Angeles Times
