About this item

This book examines the Red Love vogue that swept across the Asia-Pacific in the 1920s and 1930s as a combined form of political and sexual revolution for both 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 not only the Pacific but also 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.
