Oh, Say, Can You See?: The Semiotics of the Military in Hawai’i
Kathy E. Ferguson, Phyllis Turnbull
Softcover, 292 pp.

This paradox of invisibility and visibility, of the available and the hidden, is the subject of Oh, Say, Can You See?, which maps the power relations involving gender, race, and class that define Hawai’i in relation to the national security state.
