‘Written with great ﬂair, and refreshingly nonpartisan, Revolutionary Pasts will shift the paradigms of studying the Left in South Asia. Ali Raza embraces and acknowledges the complexity and dissonance he encounters in his archive, unpacking its agendas and oﬀering them up to the reader with astute analysis, restoring race to histories of leftist activism.’
Kama Maclean, UNSW Sydney
‘Ali Raza captures the utopian imaginaries and the global itineraries that shaped Indian Communism, and brought Marx to the subcontinent, in this beautifully written, meticulously researched book. His is a signal contribution to global intellectual history and to studies of Left thought and praxis.’
Anupama Rao, Barnard College, Columbia University
