What People are Saying About This

Harry Harootunian

New Asian Marxisms brilliantly dramatizes how contemporary scholars have remembered Marxism in Asia of an earlier time and how this 'afterlife' today calls into question the amnesia of Western Marxism and its own complicity with exclusions identified with the culturalist claims of a 'unified' West. While the essays in this volume are all concerned with a particular place and time, they also remind us of what so often is forgotten--that Marxism is at home only in the world.
— Harry Harootunian, New York University
