Imagining an End to Empire
The book as a whole considers culture as an influential site of knowledge, one that proposes confusing analytics and characteristics—a so-called unsettling hermeneutic of American exceptionalism—in the late twentieth century. It presents an alternative reading and theorization of the Cold War and extended a comprehensive way of situating and interpreting Asian American cultural texts. This chapter discusses the connection between the War on Terror, our present imperial directive, and our past imperial mandate: the Cold War. Ultimately, it aims to achieve an extensive analysis of the intersecting lineage that prompted a contemporary moment of neoliberal globalization, imperial decree, and continuing gendered racial establishments of domination.
