SEVENTY YEARS AFTER THE CHINESE REVOLUTION OF 1949, WHAT REMAINS OF MAO’S COMMUNIST LEGACY?

Seventy years after the Chinese Revolution of 1949, what remains of Mao's communist legacy?

Afterlives of Chinese Communism comprises essays from over fifty world-renowned scholars in the China field, from various disciplines and continents. It provides an indispensable guide for understanding how the Mao era continues to shape Chinese politics today. Each chapter discusses a concept or practice from the Mao period, what it attempted to do, and what has become of it since. The authors respond to the legacy of Maoism from numerous perspectives to consider what lessons Chinese communism can offer today, and whether there is a future for the egalitarian politics that it once promised.
A joint publication between Verso Books and ANU Press.

  • All of the essays are well worth reading, teasing out the theory and reality of a different Maoist concept.
