Editorial Reviews

Review

“Inderpal Grewal deftly combines postcolonial, transnational, and feminist approaches to the study of neoliberalism and consumerism in this timely and important book. The challenges it raises for area studies and disciplinary formations are sure to excite argument and debate in many different quarters.”—Akhil Gupta, author of Postcolonial Developments: Agriculture in the Making of Modern India


“Inderpal Grewal produces profound insights by bringing together disparate contemporary cultural, economic, and political phenomena within a single analytic framework, that of ‘transnational America.’ The acuity, gravity, and strenuous scholarship that mark her writing reflect the conviction that such an understanding is a crucial precondition for social transformation. This book is an important intervention by one of the foremost feminist postcolonial critics in the United States academy today.”—Rajeswari Sunder Rajan, author of The Scandal of the State: Women, Law, and Citizenship in Postcolonial India


Transnational America offers a sophisticated analysis of the complex and varied mechanisms that shore up the global economic system. Grewal’s choice of topic alone is welcome. It is refreshing to encounter such a highly developed appreciation of the critical role of discourse. Grewal handles her subject matter with subtlety and precision. . . . Grewal’s compelling thesis on the pervasive nature of America’s transnational neoliberal regime presents itself forcefully.”
(Zoe Gordon, International Feminist Journal of Politics)

“In Transnational America, Grewal offers an insightful and provocative analysis of the complex relationship between politics, consumption, culture and power in the creation of global subjectivities. In doing so, Grewal illustrates the usefulness of postcolonial theory as a prism through which to critically explore the entanglement of geopolitics and biopolitics with the disciplinary and governmental technologies that created neoliberal subjects at the end of the twentieth century. Transnational America raises important questions for those willing to confront the classed, racialized and gendered assumptions that underpin ‘the global’ in Western politics.”
(Sandra Dawson, Interventions)
