Red Love Across the Pacific PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Red Love Across the Pacific free pdf Red Love Across the Pacific examines the transnational movement that swept across the Asia-Pacific in the 1920s and 1930s as a combined form of political and sexual revolution for women and men, gay and straight, and follows its trajectory during the twentieth century. Red Love expressed a desire for a new society where love itself would be radically reconfigured. Examining film, literature, biography, and the censor's archive, this book analyzes the transnational trade in representation of new, radical, often working-class forms of desire as well as the institutions that emerged to suppress them in Australia, Korea, Japan, China, Russia, and North America. Crossing the Pacific and the great divide of the pre- and post-Cold War, this book offers compelling case studies of sexual and political revolutionaries whose excavated stories transform our understanding of the twentieth century's sexual and political history.
