Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An original, engaging, complex, and thought-provoking work. So spells out her theoretical influences in the course of the work, but also argues forcefully for her unique contribution, which is the connection of Marxian exchange value to the production of Asian American subjectivity. So is clearly marking out a new territory, exploring a set of literary texts that have not been addressed before."
Viet Nguyen, University of Southern California and author of Race and Resistance: Literature and Politics in Asian America
