People's History of Ideas Podcast

Nov 12 2020 27 mins 78

In this podcast, Matthew Rothwell, author of Transpacific Revolutionaries: The Chinese Revolution in Latin America, explores the global history of ideas related to rebellion and revolution. The main focus of this podcast for the near future will be on the history of the Chinese Revolution, going all the way back to its roots in the initial Chinese reactions to British imperialism during the Opium War of 1839-1842, and then following the development of the revolution and many of the ideas that were products of the revolution through to their transnational diffusion in the late 20th century.

Fantastic history and analysis of the Chinese Revolution. This is my first real dive into the subject matter, and he strikes a great balance of being comprehensive and accessible as an introduction to the material. Highly recommended for anyone who likes Mike Duncan's Revolutions Podcast.
