    The book’s greatest strength is its scope. Lovell traveled widely, used archives and conducted interviews in many countries and synthesized the work of scholars in the growing field of global Cold War studies.

Maoism may be reduced to cult status in the west - though as the book notes it left its mark on struggles for feminism and race equality - but in what Mao called the Third World it still really matters, not least in China itself, the world's second biggest economy and currently undergoing a revival of 'soft' Maoism as the ruling party looks for /5(21).

Maoism: A Global History by Julia Lovell is a masterpiece in a transnational history of an ideology. She traces the development, popularization and most importantly, the contradictions that Maoism takes around the world throughout the twentieth century and today/5(51). Maoism may be reduced to cult status in the west - though as the book notes it left its mark on struggles for feminism and race equality - but in what Mao called the Third World it still really matters, not least in China itself, the world's second biggest economy and currently undergoing a revival of 'soft' Maoism as the ruling party looks for /5(36).

After tackling the Great Wall and the Opium Wars, your latest book is a global history of Maoism, an ideology that seemed to have been abandoned in China after Mao’s death inonly to emerge resurgent in recent exactly is Maoism visible (or hidden under the surface) in China’s new political ideologies today.

I argue that Mao was never purged from Chinese politics. Books shelved as maoism: Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung by Mao Zedong, Continuity and Rupture: Philosophy in the Maoist Terrain by J. Moufawad-Pau.

My book is a history both of this Chinese movement, and of its global legacies: it analyses Maoism’s ambivalent history and enduring appeal to power-hungry dreamers and to dispossessed rebels. The story of Maoism’s travels takes in the tea plantations of north India, the sierras of the Andes, Paris’s 5th arrondissement, the fields of Tanzania, rice paddies in Cambodia and terraces Author: Julia Lovell.

Maoism, or Mao Zedong Thought (Chinese: 毛泽东思想; pinyin: Máo Zédōng sīxiǎng), is a variety of Marxism–Leninism that Mao Zedong developed for realising a socialist revolution in the agricultural, pre-industrial society of the Republic of China and later the People's Republic of philosophical difference between Maoism and Marxism–Leninism is that the peasantry are the Simplified Chinese: 毛泽东思想.

Maoism in the Andes: Shining Path steps from Hollywood videos, while Ayacuchan musicians splice Cuban rhythms into Incan melodies on flutes made of plastic tubing in an eclectic, yet still resolutely Andean, brand of cultural expression.

In the Andes identity and difference unfold in the charged context of the interconnected. However, the question is ably answered in the first chapter, and the rest of the book is a tour de force of all Maoism's manifestations worldwide, from the Shining Path in Peru (itself a shocking chapter) Maoist insurgencies in India, Maoism in power in Nepal, to Maoism's various manifestations in Western European radicalism in the 60s and 70s.

Maoism A Global History (Book): Lovell, Julia: "Since the heyday of Mao Zedong, there has never been a more crucial time to understand Maosim. Although to Western eyes it seems that China has long abandoned the utopian turmoil of Maoism in favour of authoritarian capitalism, Mao and his ideas remain central to the People' Republic and the legitimacy of its communist government.

In this new history, Julia Lovell re-evaluates Maoism as both a Chinese and an international force, linking its evolution in China with its global legacy.

It is a story that takes us from the tea plantations of north India to the sierras of the Andes, from Paris’s fifth arrondissement to the fields of Tanzania, from the rice paddies of 3/5(1). Maoism, doctrine consisting of the ideology and methodology for revolution developed by Mao Zedong and his associates in the Chinese Communist Party from the s until Mao’s death in Maoism was based on a distinct outlook not necessarily dependent on a Chinese or Marxist-Leninist context.

Maoism was a crucial motor of the Cold War: it shaped the course of the Vietnam War (and the international youth rebellions that conflict triggered) and brought to power the murderous Khmer Rouge in Cambodia; it aided, and sometimes handed victory to, anti-colonial resistance movements in Africa; it inspired terrorism in Germany and Italy, and Author: Julia Lovell.
