Abstract:

"Dalia M.A. Gomaa's important new book alters the map of the 'new' American Studies by incorporating Arab American writers into the unfolding story of American transnationalism, multiculturalism, migration, and racialization. She develops her comparative theory of the 'non-national' from an archive of women writers in the US from Arab, Chicana, Cuban, and South Asian―writers whom she resists collapsing into the single category 'women of color,' insisting instead on their sharp differences along with their shared contrapuntal engagements beyond the nation-state. This book makes a valuable contribution to American Studies, Gender Studies, and Migration Studies." - Susan Stanford Friedman, Professor of English, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
