If we accept that since WW II British Empire is U.S.-powered, what can we say about America as post-colonial?

Hi all, thanks to Carole for setting this up! I have a question for members. I'm teaching a course I call Global Tibet here at Reed College and I want to assign some Said on Orientalism in the beginning weeks of the course. What excerpts would members recommend? At Reed, we can pitch the readings pretty high for undergrads. Thanks much for any advice!
