(p.1) Introduction A New World
From Stalin to Mao

The introduction gives an outline of the book’s argument for socialism as a form of globalization and its overall scholarly contribution. It explains the typical chronology of Stalinism, and why this book adopts a broader lens. It also captures the importance of political breaks in socialism — like the Sino-Soviet break in the 1960s — but without neglecting continuities and forms of transnational exchange. Offering contextual background, the introduction explains why Albania is a good setting for a study of this scope. Finally, the introduction provides a roadmap to the book.

Keywords:   socialism, globalization, Albania, Stalinism, cold war, Sino-Soviet, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao
