The Origins of Chinese Communism

Based on a wealth of archival material released after Mao's death, this book offers a revisionist account of the introduction and triumph of Marxism in China. Dirlik shows that, in 1919, at the outset of the May Fourth Movement, anarchism was the predominant ideology among revolutionaries and intellectuals and Marxism was virtually unknown. Three years later, however, the Communist Party of China had emerged as the unchallenged leader of the Left. Dirlik disputes long-held beliefs about the domestic origins of Chinese Communism to argue that Communist thought and organization were brought into radical circles by the Comintern. Though Chinese radicals would not have turned to Communism unassisted, he concludes, Marxist ideology took hold easily when introduced from the outside. This book will prove indispensable to scholars of Chinese history and politics, Asian studies, Marxism, and comparative communism.

The Origins of Chinese Bolshevism

This book is the most thorough study to date of the founding period of Chinese communism, and of the aspects of its ideology that had the greatest formative impact on the subsequent development of the Chinese Communist Party.

The Origins of Chinese Bolshevism

This book is the most thorough study to date of the founding period of Chinese communism, and of the aspects of its ideology that had the greatest formative impact on the subsequent development of the Chinese Communist Party. The study of the ideological aspects of the Chinese communistmovement must address two questions: how 'communist' is it, and how 'Chinese' is it? Dr Luk makes a major contribution to answering these questions through his fully comprehensive analysis of original CCP materials which enables him to reinterpret some previously held views on the subject.

Anarchism in the Chinese Revolution

Anarchism in the Chinese Revolution

Arif Dirlik's latest offering is a revisionist perspective on Chinese radicalism in the twentieth century. He argues that the history of anarchism is indispensable to understanding crucial themes in Chinese radicalism. And anarchism is particularly significant now as a source of democratic ideals within the history of the socialist movement in China. Dirlik draws on the most recent scholarship and on materials available only in the last decade to compile the first comprehensive history of his subject available in a Western language. He emphasizes the anarchist contribution to revolutionary discourse and elucidates this theme through detailed analysis of both anarchist polemics and social practice. The changing circumstances of the Chinese revolution provide the immediate context, but throughout his writing the author views Chinese anarchism in relation to anarchism worldwide.

Revolution and History

"A fascinating contribution to Marxist historiography and to the history of Marxist historiography. Dirlik's story of the reemergence of the modes of production debate in the early years of the Chinese revolution has much to tell us about that debate itself, and not least about its intimate relationship to political practice and revolutionary strategy."—Fredric Jameson, Duke University
