2012 Arab American Book Award Winner for Non-Fiction

"While several chapters feel crucial to current discussions of transnational feminist solidarity—Mohja Kahf’s ‘Pity Committee and the Careful Reader’ and an interview with Ella Shohat—the book’s approach and value is perhaps most visible in one of its more striking essays, Amal Amireh’s ‘Palestinian Women’s Disappearing Act: The Suicide Bomber Through Western Feminist Eyes.’ "
Women’s Studies Quarterly

"A dynamic and multifaceted as well as intimate narrative of the ‘pattern of rising xenophobia against Arabs and Muslims in the post-September 11, 2001, United States.’"—Choice

"Animated by a radical passion for justice broad enough to bring Palestine into the same frame as transgender issues, environmental sustainability and immigration rights, this volume will challenge any single-axis approach to contemporary activism. The diverse contributors to this anthology collectively demonstrate the value of intersectional approaches for understanding the complexities of Arab and Arab American feminisms."—Angela Y. Davis, author of Women, Culture, & Politics

"Incisive feminist analyses on Arab and Muslim Americans. Empirically rich, creative contributions. Searing critiques of illusions and raw realities of race, gender, sexuality, and nation in ‘post-racial America.’"—Suad Joseph, editor of Citizenship in the Middle East

"The long-awaited volume, Arab and Arab American Feminisms, is destined to become a canonical text for women’s and ethnic studies classes."—Andrea Smith, coeditor of The Color of Violence: The Incite! Anthology

"This groundbreaking book offers an extraordinarily rich collection of powerful voices, which speak in an abundance of diverse genres and perspectives."—Amy Kaplan, author of The Anarchy of Empire in the Making of U.S Culture

"A passionate, deeply moving, illuminating text that needs to be on everyone’s bookshelf—especially those of us concerned with racial, sexual, and gender justice in a post 9/11 world."Chandra Mohanty, author of Feminism Without Borders: Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity
