"Eloquent and insightful, "National Abjection" skillfully caputres the complicated 'dance' of Asian American cultural and political performance. Karen Shimakawa's reading of racial abjection makes an original and profound commentary on how theater embodies and engenders national fantasies, desires, and realities. This book should be read not only by scholars; in an ideal world, it should be distributed at all productions of "Miss Saigon.""--Josephine Lee, author of "Performing Asian America: Race and Ethnicity on the Contemporary Stage "
