Reviews

"Smart, funny, comprehensive, and theoretically astute."
-Nell Irvin Painter, author of The History of White People

"A kaleidoscopic study rich in historical depth, topical breadth, and critical rigor."
-John Dower, author of Embracing Defeat: Japan in the Wake of World War II

"An insightful new anthology."
-Steven Heller, Atlantic

"A comprehensive archive of the underbelly of anxiety and hatred. As the US economy suffers from acute indigestion, 'China,' like 'Japan' before it, will provide a dishonest salve. Close attention to the history of the 'yellow peril' will protect the good-minded from falling deep into the well of is virulence."
-Vijay Prashad, author of The Poorer Nations: A Possible History of the Global South

"This brilliant, well-documented book provides much-needed historical perspectives on oriental-phobia, and other racist and racial ways of thinking."
-Jack G. Shaheen, author of Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People

"An exhaustive but not exhausting set of readings."
-Sander L. Gilman, author of Smart Jews and Fat: A Cultural History of Obesity

"In this illuminating book, Tchen and Yeats address the political and cultural legacy of yellow perilism, that set of beliefs and practices stemming from a long tradition of othering, identity formation, and binary divisions of 'the West' and 'the East' ... What emerges is a compelling case that cultural and political change is needed, and that change is possible only through 'historical recognition,' which, Tchen and Yeats say, leads to 'reckoning and action.'"
-Publishers Weekly
