    For anyone who wishes to learn more about the process of racialization in the U.S., as well the dynamics and interactions of the Syrian immigrants to the U.S., this is an excellent place to start. Gualtieri is thorough and details everything from how the immigrants perceived themselves and their status in this society, to how U.S. media classified them, to their interactions with other minority groups in the U.S.

    Thorough, well-researched, well-written -- This book is an overview of the "racing" of Arabs and Middle Easterners in the United States, with a focus on the "racial prerequisite cases" of the early 20th century / the many ways in which Arabs litigated official racial classifications in the U.S. court system. Gualtieri's work is powerful and important and will be appreciated by and useful for anyone thinking about race and whiteness in the U.S. Really great read alongside Ian Haney-López's White Thorough, well-researched, well-written -- This book is an overview of the "racing" of Arabs and Middle Easterners in the United States, with a focus on the "racial prerequisite cases" of the early 20th century / the many ways in which Arabs litigated official racial classifications in the U.S. court system.
