“Maira’s vivid ethnography The 9/11 Generation introduces the political work forged by Muslim and Arab American youth. With their own brand of political organizing, these young people contest the uncomplicated way the categories ‘Muslim’ and ‘youth’ are framed as dangerous in the post-9/11 era. Through their committed activism that bridges race and faith, a lesson that draws on the civil rights struggle of the last century, they are engaging in a critique of empire and, ultimately, actively finding ways to change the world.”-Junaid Rana,author of Terrifying Muslims: Race and Labor in the South Asian Diaspora
“Sunaina Marr Maira’s The 9/11 Generation is predictably excellent and essential—a book that leads us through the impact of the Global War on Terror on Afghan American, Arab American and South Asian American youth. This is an ethnography with teeth—gripping and urgent.”-Vijay Prashad,author of Uncle Swami: South Asians in America Today
"Begins an important inquiry into what America has become. A must read."-Choice
