Summary
'Invisible Subjects' broadens the archive of Asian American studies, using advances in Asian American history and historiography to reinterpret the politics of the major figures of post-World War II American literature and criticism. Taking its theoretical inspiration from the work of Ralph Ellison and his focus on the invisibility of a racial minority in mainstream history, the text argues that the work of American studies and literature in the early Cold War era to explain and contain the troubling Asian figure reflects both the swift amnesia that covers the Pacific theatre of World War II and the importance of the Asian to immigration debates and civil rights.
