From the Back Cover
"Espiritu uses her considerable scholarly talent to develop the notion of refuge(ee) not as a social problem but as a conceptual prism that exposes the multiple legacies of U.S. militarized violence and colonialism. Original and trenchantly argued, this book refracts light on the invisible stories of Vietnamese refugees and points us towards new innovative approaches for future inquiries."―Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, author of Paradise Transplanted: Migration and the Making of California Gardens
"A pathbreaking work in “critical refuge(e) studies,” Body Counts introduces extremely rich and provocative new methodologies for investigating the humanitarian violence of U.S. military empire. Compelling us to move beyond the familiar terms of American war narrative and its silences, Espiritu offers the everyday refugee life as a site of politicizing possibilities and hopes for a world radically remade."―Lisa Yoneyama, Professor, University of Toronto, author of Hiroshima Traces: Time, Space and the Dialectics of Memory
