From the Back Cover:

Locating Race provides a powerful critique of theories and fictions of globalization that privilege migration, transnationalism, and flows. Malini Johar Schueller argues that in order to resist racism and imperialism in the United States we need to focus on local understandings of how different racial groups are specifically constructed and oppressed by the nation-state and imperial relations. In the writings of Black Nationalists, Native American activists, and groups like Partido Nacional La Raza Unida, the author finds an imagined identity of post-colonial citizenship based on a race- and place-based activism that forms solidarities with oppressed groups worldwide and suggests possibilities for a radical globalism.

"This is an interesting and well-researched contribution to postcolonial and postnationalist American Studies. Schueller's argument is clear and important: postcolonial theories have tended to universalize gender, sexuality, race, class, and other modes of identification, and we need more detailed studies of `local, situated knowledge' dealing with how such subalterns are specifically constructed." -- John Carlos Rowe, author of The New American Studies

"Written with impressive clarity and a strong sense of ethico-political urgency, Locating Race facilitates a lively and argumentative conversation among post-coloniality, American Studies, and critical race theory. Maintaining a rich conjunctural focus on theory, history, and the discursive economy of literary texts, Schueller demonstrates persuasively the perilous predicaments of citizenship during these, our times of uneven and asymmetrical globalization." -- R. Radhakrishnan, author of History, the Human, and the World Between
