Synopsis

Oriental Bodies charts the discursive transformations of U.S. immigration policy between 1875 and 1942. Drawing from American foreign policy, identity politics, post-structuralism, post-colonialism, and feminist theory, this fascinating study seeks to examine the construction of "Oriental bodies" within the emergence of U.S. immigration policy and explores how these constructions served political, social, and economic interests.
