Editorial Reviews

Review

Unruly Immigrants is a brilliantly written study of feminist, queer, and labor activism among post-1965 South Asian immigrants in the United States. These transnational activists confront issues of rights, citizenship, and identity to mount challenges both within and outside their communities against the monolithic positioning of South Asians as ‘model minorities.’ This book is a path-breaking contribution to South Asian diaspora studies.”—Linda Carty, Africana Studies, Syracuse University


Unruly Immigrants makes a vital contribution to the fields of Asian American and South Asian diaspora studies by detailing the multiple strategies by which post-1965 South Asian progressive organizations in the United States have contested notions of citizenship, belonging, authenticity, and culture.”—Gayatri Gopinath, author of Impossible Desires: Queer Diasporas and South Asian Public Cultures


“This book is especially worthwhile in understanding social justice organizing; the intersection of immigration and race with gender, queer, and labor activism; and critiques of the neoliberal state relative to immigration . . . In particular it is a significant addition to the literature on Asian-American activism and on social justice organizing.”
(Pawan Dhingra, Contemporary Sociology)
