Since the close of WWII, American military bases have crowded the small island of Okinawa.
Outside their fences, Okinawans, Americans, and Japanese clash and coexist. Night In The American Village: Women in the Shadows of the U.S. Military Bases in Okinawa explores these base borderlands through stories of local women. Weaving together personal narratives and the complex history of the U.S., Japan, and Okinawa, this nonfiction book illuminates everyday life on the edges of the American empire.
Night In The American Village will be published by The New Press in 2019.
