About the Author

Josephine Park is Associate Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania. Her book Apparitions of Asia: Modernist Form and Asian American Poetics was awarded the Literary Book Award by the Association for Asian American Studies.


Revising the supposed otherness and passivity of Cold War friendlies, Park perceptively illuminates that self-positioning proto-American subjects negotiate the sometimes conflicting imperatives of both Cold War alliances and Asian American assimilation. Tracing the wartime genealogy of Asian Americanization, Cold War Friendships speaks not just to Asian American and Cold War Studies but also to transpacific studies [...] If we see Cold War Friendships as a response to the transnational turn in Asian American studies, Park deftly reveals how this transnational turn must also include a recognition of historically invisible proto-American friendlies and their difficult but sincere attachments to the United States. * Yi-Ting Chang, Pennsylvania State University, in Journal of Asian American Studies *
