Editorial Reviews


“This collection is evidence of the important topics and perspectives generated by illuminating AfroAsian linkages.”

-The Journal of African American History


“As fresh and exciting as it is important. This crucial book changes the conversation around American Studies and Ethnic Studies in key ways, challenging scholars to light out for previously-uncharted places on our mental maps in which borders are interrogated and challenged, alliances forged through imagined communities, commerce, popular culture, or politics are investigated and probed, and questions that are simultaneously new, and half a century old, are revivified. This volume, the first interdisciplinary anthology dealing with AfroAsian encounters, stands to become a landmark work in the field.”
-Shelley Fisher Fishkin,Stanford University

“Succeeds at placing blacks and Asians at the center of the Americas, inviting productive dialogue against the notion that interaction between these groups is out of the ordinary.”
-Journal of American Ethnic History


“A ground-breaking interdisciplinary anthology entirely devoted to the studies of historical and contemporary African/Asian interactions.”
-African American Review


“What critical anthologies do best is to present. . . . And AfroAsian Encounters does that.”
-Journal of Asian American Studies
