Militarized Currents
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Foregrounding indigenous and feminist scholarship, this collection analyzes militarization as an extension of colonialism from the late twentieth to the twenty-first century in Asia and the Pacific. The contributors theorize the effects of militarization across former and current territories of Japan and the United States, such as Guam, Okinawa, the Marshall Islands, the Philippines, and Korea, demonstrating that the relationship between militarization and colonial subordination-and their gendered and racialized processes-shapes and produces bodies of memory, knowledge, and resistance. Contributors: Walden Bello, U of the Philippines; Michael Lujan Bevacqua, U of Guam; Patti Duncan, Oregon State U; Vernadette Vicu\u00f1a Gonzalez, U of Hawai\u2018i, M noa; Insook Kwon, Myongji U; Laurel A. Monnig, U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; Katharine H. S. Moon, Wellesley College; Jon Kamakawiwo\u2018ole Osorio, U of Hawai\u2018i, M noa; Naoki Sakai, Cornell U; Fumika Sato, Hitotsubashi U; Theresa Cenidoza Suarez, California State U, San Marcos; Teresia K. Teaiwa, Victoria U, Wellington; Wesley Iwao Ueunten, San Francisco State U.
