Rezensionen
"Although the book discusses only autobiographies as an effective reframing tool, it stands out as an astounding monograph about Arab/Muslim American scholarship in general, and will be of use to diverse scholars in pursuit of ethnic, transnational, and postcolonial studies." Ali A. Alhajji, Wiener Zeitschrift für die Kunde des Morgenlandes, 106 (2016)
