The Karma of Brown Folk

By Prashad, Vijay

Minneapolis, MN, U.S.A.: University of Minnesota Press, 2000. This book is a critique of the model minority image of South Asians as inherently successful and the way American immigration policy and American Orientalism have perpetuated these stereotypes; the author challenges the arguments of Dinesh D'Souza who heralds South Asian success in the United States and questions the quiet accomodation to racism by many South Asians; tracing the long engagement of American culture with South Asia, he illustrates India's effect on Mather, Thoreau, and other thinkers, Ravi Shanker's influence on John Coltrane, and issues such as race versus caste and the connection between antiracism activism and anticolonial resistance; includes photographs (black cloth with white lettering; black pictorial dust jacket with very slight edgewear; otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy). First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
