"Ewing brings a fresh perspective to the literature on Muslim immigrants in Europe by shifting her research focus from their cultural and religious characteristics to the national imagery of the majority population . . . This book should be required reading for graduate students to develop a critical eye for the literature on Muslim minorities in the West."Ahmet Yukleyen, "Journal of Anthropological Research""
"Katherine Pratt Ewing's "Stolen Honor" provides an interesting and original approach to analysis of discourses of Islam in Europe by focusing on construction of Muslim masculinity in Germany . . . [The] book is particularly valuable in its interdisciplinary perspective."Beverly M. Weber, "H-Net Reviews.""
"This is a highly original book that must be read by anyone interested in Muslims in Europe. Ewing flips the usual questions about discourses on honor and the 'oppression' of Muslim women to focus on their obverse: the stigmatization of Muslim men. Brilliantly linking media representations to the social worlds of Turkish origin men in Germany, she provides, ultimately, a devastating analysis of the fantasies that animate the German national imaginary."Lila Abu-Lughod, Columbia University, author of "Writing Women's Worlds" and "Dramas of Nationhood""
"Considering the case of Turkish Muslims in Germany, Ewing's inventive exploration of fear, stereotypes, assimilation, community, conflict, and cultural discourses should be mandatory reading. The processes she uncovers are of central relevance in the world today."Aisha Khan, New York University"
