Conclusion: Sanguinary Futures
This chapter extends the questions raised throughout the book into the twenty-first century. Examining the rise of neoliberal blood security policies, Hannabach argues that the twentieth century isn’t over yet. Here in the twenty-first century, we inhabit a geopolitical terrain forged in the “bloodiest century” that was simultaneously the “American century” of empire. The chapter offers an extended reading of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and argues that despite its global health and humanitarian rhetoric, PEPFAR links blood, sex, and race to expand US empire and war.
