Pressestimmen"[T]his is a classic study both ethically and critically. . . . [I]t embodies a particular intellectual stand against unreason and inhumanity in the motherland in which the verbal pyrotechnics of the critical imagination open up a complex dialogue on transculturation, national identity, and subalternity. . . . [A]n exciting, often contentious, contribution to ethnic, gender, and subalternity studies." --K.M. Sibbald, "Choice"
