            Uncle Swami: South Asians in America Today
             

            Uncle Swami: South Asians in America Today (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Within hours of the attacks on the World Trade Center, misdirected assaults on Sikhs and other South Asians flared in communities across the nation, serving as harbingers of a more suspicious, less discerning, and increasingly fearful worldview that would drastically change ideas... of belonging and acceptance in America. Weaving together distinct strands of recent South Asian immigration to the United States, Uncle Swami examines a diverse and dynamic people whose identities are all too often lumped together, glossed over, or simply misunderstood. Vijay Prashad confronts the experience of migration across an expanse of generations and class divisions, from the birth of political activism among second-generation immigrants and the meteoric rise of South Asian American politicians in Republican circles to migrant workers at the mercy of the vicissitudes of the American free market. Described as eye-opening ( Kirkus Reviews ), bound to spark discussion ( Booklist ), and required reading for anyone who wants to understand race, assimilation, and patriotism ( The Boston Globe ), Uncle Swami restores a diasporic community to its full-fledged complexity beyond both model minorities and the specters of terrorism.

            We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future (Hardback)

            In the years since 9/11, national security laws, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant sentiment influenced public policies, leading to hate violence and criminalization of South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh immigrants. In An America for All, Deepa Iyer blends first-person accounts w...ith profiles of young people remaking the American racial landscape while facing the effects of racism. These young activists use creative resistance to build multiracial solidarity and shape a new America in which the other belongs. This generation of activists, Iyer argues, is igniting a twenty-first century racial justice movement with an intersectional approach that draws on faith, immigration status, gender, class, and sexual orientation. As the United States transforms into a majority-minority nation, racial anxiety will continue to influence people's lives. Iyer deftly analyzes the forces of the new racism in the United States and offers practices for multiracial solidarity and inclusive racial narratives. An America for All is a powerful and timely book about the more than ten million South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh immigrants that are remaking America--for the better.
