Forcing a fundamental rethinking of the Asian American elite, many of whom have attained top positions in business, government, academia, sciences, and the arts, this book will be certain to generate a good deal of controversy and honest discussion regarding the role Asian Americans will play in the new century as China and India loom ever larger in the world economic system. Not since the large-scale infusion of scientists and engineers fleeing Nazi Germany has there been such a mass importation of intellectual labor from U.S. client states in Asia. One of the specialized tasks assigned to this group is to build the technetronic infrastructure for the new world order command and control system. 'Servitors of Empire' is not intended to fan the flames of suspicion and paranoia aimed at Asian Americans, but serves to illuminate the way in which highly trained knowledge workers are being employed to bring sovereign nations such as the United States under centralized rule made possible through advances in bioscience, IT, engineering, and global finance.

Reviews

"Darrell Hamamoto' Servitors of Empire provides a provocative account of the rise of the U.S. military-industrial-technoscience complex and focuses in particular on the participation and impact on Asian Americans. Hamamoto' study will raise eyebrows, perhaps draw gasps, and will impact Asian American Studies and studies of US empire for years to come." Douglas Kellner, George F. Kneller Chair in the philosophy of education, UCLA, author, Media Spectacle and Insurrection, 2011: From the Arab Uprisings to Occupy Everywhere
