Tracing the significance of oriental style in contemporary Hollywood  
cinema

YELLOW FUTURE: Oriental Style in Hollywood Cinema
By Jane Chi Hyun Park
University of Minnesota Press | 272 pages | 2010
ISBN 978-0-8166-4980-8 | paperback  | $25.00

Yellow Future examines the emergence and popularity of techno-oriental  
representations in Hollywood cinema since the 1980s, focusing on the  
collective fantasy of East Asia as the future. Jane Chi Hyun Park  
demonstrates how this fantasy is sustained through imagery,  
iconography, and performance that conflate East Asia with technology,  
constituting what Park calls oriental style.

PRAISE FOR YELLOW FUTURE:
"Yellow Future’s emphasis on ‘oriental style’ is interesting and  
fresh. I can see other scholars in the field picking up this term and  
running with it, both in their writing and teaching. Jane Chi Hyun  
Park has written an excellent, useful book."—Lisa Nakamura, University  
of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jane Chi Hyun Park is lecturer in the Department of Gender and  
Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney in Australia.
