    Abstract

    Despite its considerable influence at the height of the Cold War and in the post-World War II events in the global South, Maoism is often remembered through the lens of kitsch Mao-era memorabilia or Maoist chic. It is surprising then, that an ideology which so influenced the geopolitics of the last century has only now received its first comprehensive account in Julia Lovell's Maoism: A Global History.
