Flavors of Empire

Mark Padoongpatt

University of California Press

The conclusion explains the author's reasons for writing the book, including autobiographical material, and how the author came to the topic. It details the book's scholarly contributions and interventions into dominant narratives of postwar U.S. empire, race in America, post-1965 immigration, and metropolitan history. It ends with a discussion of the larger goals of the book and the insights it can provide into issues related to food, identity, and community in the United States today, including cultural appropriation, cultural food colonialism, and cuisine-driven multiculturalism.

Keywords:   autobiographical, U.S. empire, race, immigration, metropolitan, cultural appropriation, cultural food colonialism, cuisine driven multiculturalism
