Displaying the particular vitality of the global traditions of Marxism and neomarxism at the beginning of the twenty-first century, New AsianMarxisms collects essays by a diverse group of scholars-historians, political scientists, literary scholars, and sociologists-who offer a range of studies of the Marxist heritage focusing on Korea, Japan, India, and China.

While some of these essays take up key thinkers in Marxist history or draw attention to outstanding problematics, others focus on national literature and discourse in North and South Korea, the "Mao Zedong Fever" of the 1990s, the implications of Li Dazhao's poetry, and the Indian Naxalite movement. Illustrating the importance of central analytical categories like exploitation, alienation, and violence to studies on the politics of knowledge, contributors confront prevailing global consumerist fantasies
with accounts of political struggle, cultural displacement, and theoretical strategies.

Contributors. Tani E. Barlow, Dai Jinhua, Michael Dutton, D. R. Howland, Marshall Johnson, Liu Kang, You-me Park, William Pietz, Claudia Pozzana, Alessandro Russo, Sanjay Seth, Gi-Wook Shin, Sugiyama Mitsunobu, Jing Wang

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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
