About this book

This book examines the Red Love vogue that swept across the Asia-Pacific in the 1920s and 1930s as part of a worldwide interest in socialism and follows its trails throughout the twentieth century. Encouraging both political and sexual liberation, Red Love was a transnational movement demonstrating the revolutionary potential of love and desire.

Reviews

"This incredibly timely collection maps the vogue for stories of eros and revolutionary politics that spread across the Asia Pacific through writing, art, and activism. Grappling with works that have been distorted by state repression and self-censorship, the authors demonstrate their compelling and often surprising implications and legacies." Cheryl Higashida, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA

"Red Love Across the Pacific brings together cutting-edge work by leading scholars from Australasia, Asia, Russia, and North America. The result is a completely new understanding of the history of revolutionary movements in the trans-Pacific." Theodore Hughes, Columbia University, USA

"Red Love Across the Pacific is a unique and inspired collection of essays, brilliantly conceived Barraclough, Bowen-Struyk, and Rabinowitz are without a doubt the most eminently qualified to put together a collection such as this, and the diversity of their geopolitical fields of specialization has allowed them to envision a volume that is transnational rather than simply international." Elyssa Faison, University of Oklahoma, USA
