roads, railways, schools, sewerage and hospitals were built, it is unlikely that either Taiwan’s post-war economic miracle and the new belief circles that emerged from it, could have proceeded at such a rapid pace without these Japanese contributions. The ‘Japanisation Movement’ that emerged in the late 1930s sought to transform the residents of Taiwan into Japanese citizens, and many local residents adopted Japanese names, while in return Taiwan produced food supplies to support Japan’s war machine. Due to the thirty-eight years of martial law under the KMT which

Melissa Gira Grant has called this feminism’s own ‘war on women’, where some women are subjected to poverty, violence and prison in the name of defending other women’s rights.36 In the next two chapters, I will examine this ‘war machine’ of white feminism in more detail. 108 PHIPPS

It is not surprising that the majority of transexclusionary and anti-sex-work feminists are white. This reactionary feminism accelerates the white feminist ‘war machine’, using the media and social media outrage economy to maximum effect.

with the oppositional Country ideology – or Old Whig and Commonwealth – that developed from roughly the 1660s as a critique of Crown patronage and an expanding professional army, as well as a system of public credit and national debt (including a newly founded Bank of England) that helped Britain become a major European war machine. This drew on, and in many ways Anglicised, European traditions of
