Product Description

Review

'Funny, sarcastic, witty, provocative, engaging and challenging, this book is sure to leave a significant mark on how we think about and enact progressive politics' - Evelyn Alsultany, University of Michigan 'The Uncultured Wars is a searing intervention by a political thinker who incisively critiques US liberalism, anti-Arab racism, Islamophobia, and the brutal excesses of empire. Salaita's eloquent, honest and witty analysis challenges contemporary thinking about race, religion, feminism, indigeneity, the 'war on terror' and the Middle East. This is a book that anyone interested in cultural politics must read.' - Sunaina Maira, University of California: Davis 'You hold in your hands the work of a genuine intellectual, someone who privileges humanity over capital. Refusing to engage simplistic binaries, Salaita has provided a nuanced and much needed perspective that helps to historicize, anchor and elucidate the place of Arabs and Muslims in the larger central questions of race. The Uncultured Wars is illuminating, forthright and stripped to bare honesty.' - Matthew Shenoda, author of Somewhere Else and Seasons of Lotus, Seasons of Bone.

Clever, Well-Argued and Relevant. A Must Read. 13 Aug. 2014
By Francis de Sales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I borrowed this book from a friend and read a few articles in it: The Perils and Profits of Doing Comparative Work and; I Was Called Up to Commit Genocide; and Anti-Arab Racism. Both were very relevant to me as a Palestinian Christian, and as someone who is studying experiences similar to that of the Palestinians when it comes to struggling against a superior invading force and living as a minority in one's own land. Salaita's background as an Arab Christian who is an American citizen, and his perspective were very interesting to me as it is very similar. It was also interesting to investigate the similarities and differences in perspective between my views and his.

My rating is based on the articles I read. They were articulate, thorough, and well-argued. The material is also very relevant given the events taking place both in Gaza and in Salaita's life. I believe this book will add a richness in perspective to anyone who reads it.

Salaita amazing analysis exposes deep roots of anti-Muslim and anti-Arab sentiments even among some of the leading patriarchs of the left. Very scholarly and convincing.
