Comments Terrifying Muslims: Race and Labor in the South Asian Diaspora

  • Kavya

    Key text for anyone interested in current-day Islam or labor issues. Closely looks at the function of race and capitalism. Very sobering and analytical. sometimes the author relies too much on theories of others rather than letting the material speak for itself. Nevertheless, the vignettes he provides are crucial and timely.
