Diaspora, Sovereignty, and Cold War Imperialism
This chapter provides a transpacific approach to understanding Asian American activism and to unveiling the Cold War to be an epistemological project and a fantasy construction that created a transpacific disjuncture of political struggle. It does so by revisiting the Protecting Diaoyutai Movement (Baowei Diaoyutai Yundong, hereafter referred to as Baodiao) as an instance of Asia's Cold War agitations that shared similar concerns with Asian American struggles for liberation and self-determination in the late 1960s. This chapter argues that the Baodiao movement not only shared with the Asian American movement an affiliation with radical Third World politics, represented by the Cultural Revolution in China and the antiwar movement in America, but also initiated a critical examination of American imperialism in Asia.
