" ?This powerful collection of dazzling essays offers essential reading for our times. It shows us historically how the vast geopolitical movements of empire and globalization rely on intimate recesses of everyday domestic life at home and abroad . It demonstrates the urgency of understanding the long history and geographical reach of the American empire through comparative and transnational perspectives.??Amy Kaplan, author of The Anarchy of Empire in the Making of U.S. Culture Haunted by Empire brilliantly illustrates how power plays out in the management of bodies, sentiments, and desires. Readers interested in how attention to the intimate is reconfiguring both U.S. history and postcolonial studies and illuminating the convergences between the two will treasure this rich and provocative book."
