about this item

Blood Cultures traces the cultural history of blood as it enabled the twentieth-century American empire. Spilling blood, managing blood, banking blood, and even sucking blood defined the nation and its practices, from Alcatraz Island to Guantanamo Bay. Bringing together science studies, pop culture, and anti-racist feminist and ****** politics, the book examines how blood saturated the twentieth-century cultural imaginary, slipped into laws and policies, flowed across screens, and seeped into our most intimate relationships.
