Beyond the Chinese Connection Reviewed in MELUS

My book, Beyond the Chinese Connection: Contemporary Afro-Asian Cultural Production, was recently reviewed in MELUS, Journal for the Society for the Study of the Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States.  Julia Lee writes:

Anderson’s work to connect Lee’s filmic oeuvre with cultural productions of a much later period initially might seem quixotic to literary scholars used to working within strictly defined periods, but to my mind, this represents the project’s greatest strength. Anderson takes seriously Hortense Spillers’s notion of discontinuities, which emphasizes the uneven and fluid nature of ethnic literary histories.
