Action note: digitized 2020. committed to preserveSummary: How do we live in and with empire? The contributors to this book pursue this question by examining empire as an unequally shared present. Here empire stands as an entrenched, if often invisible, part of everyday life central to making and remaking a world in which it is too often presented as an aberration rather than as a structuring condition. This volume presents scholarship from across U.S. imperial formations: settler colonialism, overseas territories, communities impacted by U.S. military action of political intervention, Cold War alliances and fissures, and, most recently, new forms of U.S. empire after 9/11. From the Mohawk Nation, Korea, and the Philippines to Iraq and the hills of New Jersey, the contributors show how a methodological and theoretical commitment to ethnography sharpens all of our understandings of the novel and timeworn ways people live, thrive, and resist in the imperial present.

CHOICE Review

One seldom thinks of imperialism in our society today. However, this book comprises articles from two-dozen anthropologists and scholars that strive to demonstrate that the US is indeed an imperialistic, empire-building power. The 22 chapters that make up this book cover myriad aspects of American life and history, from American conduct in dealing with indigenous peoples to the Iran-Contra conspiracy and the War on Terror. The authors' goal is to reveal to readers the permutations of events both historical and current, and implications that are seldom considered. Most marked is the sometimes desperate struggles of the people involved, who only wish to exist peacefully within our disparate societies. At times Americans tend to resemble the proverbial ostrich with its head in the ground. Considering the current political climate, this epic seems timely. The nearly 50-page bibliography offers a sturdy jumping-off point for further study; however, the prose is often dense, forcing this reviewer to make copious notes in the margins to aid comprehension. Summing Up: Recommended. Advanced undergraduates through faculty. --Susan J Zuber-Chall, formerly, Emporia State University
