Reagan’s invasions of Grenada and Central America and his promotion of the Star Wars missile defense in 1983 led to the notice of Edge City. A decade and a half later, both George W. Bush’s wars on Iraq and Afghanistan and the Homeland Security state led to another rash of building. The conclusion to this book sets the War on Terror infrastructure alongside uses left over from the Cold War to stress the continuity of US imperialism as lived relation in the home front that transcends the epochs that organize American foreign-policy scholarship and public culture, considering how creative acts of mapping and their arguments about the nature of the US state mark out a set of ethical questions about US imperial culture and society trickling down to the present.
