This text examines the politics of tradition and the tradition of politics in Pacific Asia via case stories at the South Pacific, China, South Korea, Thailand and Southeast Asia. The contexts and cultures of the chapters are wide-ranging and Callahan skilfully ties them including the target of reading the relation among the state’s cultural governance and resistance to it.

The issues coated include:

  • governmentality and cultural creation
  • popular tradition and resistance
  • East/West family
  • gender, id and democracy
  • civil society, social pursuits and democracy
  • national and transnational id creation.

Cultural Governance and Resistance in Pacific Asia addresses the dynamics among Asian reports and cultural experiences, and the overlap among comparative politics and diplomacy, and as such will attract scholars and students of Asian reviews, cultural experiences, comparative politics, sociology and anthropology alike.

The following sections will examine the army’s more sophisticated telling of the narratives of naturalization and reassurance through the topics of technology and disarmament. This narrative constructs the JACADS project as part of its latest cultural production of the “South Pacific”—even though Johnston Island and Hawai‘i are both in the North Pacific. Like Bali-ha’i, the Pacific is constructed in the popular and military imagination as an empty place, a sign that not only needs to be filled with exotic meaning, but often filled with toxic waste as well.

20 In February 1990, however, there was a development that challenged this reassuring narrative of disarmament. European chemical weapons were added to the list of Pacific-based rockets to be destroyed at JACADS. W. Bush and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl’s commitment to transport nerve gas weapons out of Germany to Johnston Island by the end of 1990. This shift in plans—from destroying chemical weapons on-site to shipping them halfway around the world to Johnston Island—aroused much public opposition.
