Marc Opper

Zhou Enlai, Mao Zedong, and Bo Gu in Yan'anMy research focuses on the origins, conduct, and outcome of internal conflicts with a focus the organization, ideology, and functioning of armed groups. My empirical focus is on left-wing revolutionary movements in China, Malay(si)a, and Vietnam and the operation of the Leninist regimes they establish. My approach to research combines the theoretical insights of the social sciences with the rich nuance of history and area studies to produce work that appreciates and embraces local contexts while producing generally-applicable theoretical insights. I am also dedicated to uncovering new primary source materials and using them to cast a new light on the history of East and Southeast Asia.
