Commemorating October 1917: Re-thinking Marxism and the Russian Revolution in East and Southeast Asia

It is undoubtable that Marxism and the Russian Revolution of 1917 changed the nature and course of the entire Russian empire. However, the revolutionary wave also spread to different places as the news of it reverberated around the globe, including East and Southeast Asia. However, Asian governments, social groups, organizations, artists, activists, intellectuals, and last but not least workers interpreted both the Marxian revolutionary ideas as well as the Russian Revolution in divergent ways.
