As a crucial addition to the field of Arab American studies, Race and Arab Americans Before and After 9/11 also promises to critically expand the fields of ethnic studies, American studies, and Middle East studies by theorizing the dynamic intersection between race, nation, citizenship, religion, class, gender, and discourses of 'civilization' in relation to Arab and Muslim Americans.-- "Journal of Middle East Women's Studies"
A breakthrough volume. No one has systematically tried to situate Arab American studies within American race theory. . . . very challenging and highly provocative. It will engage readers across the disciplines and will be a must read.-- "Suad Joseph, University of California, Davis"
A volume with a consistent theme--the 'racialization process' of Arab Americans after 9/11--and a rich discursive analysis of 'whiteness, ' 'blackness, ' and 'otherization.'-- "Choice"
