Ono (Asian American studies and communications, U. of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign) continues his construction of a transhistorical political ethic that requires the living to enter into dialogue with both forebears and future inhabitants about matters such as dirty water and air, and who left all that junk in the yard. His main focus here is how Americans can not know what an imperialist country they live it, looking at media representations that reproduce, reconstruct, and re-imagine colonialism. Among his perspectives are being a vampire on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Power Rangers and an ideological critique of neocolonialism, Pocahontas as neocolonial rhetoric, and domesticating terrorism in Différence. These are a tiny sample, he says, and his main message is that neocolonial texts are everywhere in American media. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
