Cold War Ruins: Transpacific Critique of American Justice by Lisa Yoneyama

By Lisa Yoneyama

In Cold warfare Ruins Lisa Yoneyama argues that the efforts intensifying because the Nineties to carry justice to the sufferers of jap army and colonial violence have generated what she calls a "transborder redress culture." A manufactured from failed post-World struggle II transitional justice that left many colonial legacies intact, this tradition either contests and reiterates the advanced transwar and transpacific entanglements that experience sustained the chilly conflict unredressability and illegibility of yes violences. via linking justice to the results of yankee geopolitical hegemony, and by means of deploying a conjunctive cultural critique—of "comfort girls" redress efforts, state-sponsored apologies and amnesties, Asian American involvement in redress instances, the continued results of the U.S. career of Japan and Okinawa, jap atrocities in China, and battles over WWII memories—Yoneyama is helping light up how redress tradition throughout Asia and the Pacific has the capability to carry robust new and hard views on American exceptionalism, militarized safety, justice, sovereignty, forgiveness, and decolonization.
