Anti-Imperialist Modernism: Race and Transnational Radical Culture from the Great Depression to the Cold WarBenjamin Balthaser 2015 This open access version made available with the support of libraries participating in Knowledge Unlatched.
Chapters examine farmworker photographers in California's central valley, a Nez Perce intellectual traveling to the Soviet Union, imaginations of the Haitian Revolution, the memory of the U.S.–Mexico War, and U.S. radical writers traveling to Cuba. The last chapter examines how the Cold War foreclosed these movements within a nationalist framework, when activists and intellectuals had to suppress the transnational nature of their movements, often rewriting the cultural past to conform to a patriotic narrative of national belonging.
