"Wigs, men's suits, and shocking posthumous disclosures: such are some stereotypical elements of passing lives. But this rich and stimulating collection maps a more varied territory of passing&38212;with its invisible differences, sly performances, and 'chameleonic blood,' its compelled betrayals, fears of infiltration, and deeply desired poses. Passing details the terrors of such border crossings and the threats they pose to ways of knowing, indeed to identity itself."
-Carolyn Dinshaw,Director of The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at NYU
"In Passing: Identity and Interpretations in Sexuality, Race, and Religion, editors María Carla Sánchez and Linda Schlossberg have assembled relevant cultural criticism by 10 scholars."
"Passing is a very useful contribution to the literature both on sexualities and the politics of identity generally...the analyses in Passing throw light not only on minority identities but also on more mainstream ones."
