Militarized Currents: Toward a Decolonized Future in Asia and the Pacific

Setsu Shigematsu and Keith L. Camacho


Foregrounding indigenous and feminist scholarship, this book analyzes militarization as an extension of colonialism from the late twentieth to the twenty-first century in Asia and the Pacific. The chapters 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.

Keywords: militarization, colonialism, Asia, Pacific, Japan, Guam, Okinawa, Marshall Islands, Philippines, Korea
