Honorable Mention

The 2016 Luciano Tomassini Latin American International Relations Book Award Committee awarded an honorable mention to Alien Nation:Chinese Migration in the Americas from the Coolie Era through World War II (University of North Carolina Press, 2014), by Elliott Young. Young has written a theoretically sophisticated study that is based on multi-country archival research.  The committee believed that his study of Chinese migration to the Americas operates at a place between foreign relations history, national histories, borderlands study, and cultural studies in a way that pushes scholarship forward in innovative and exciting ways. Young’s work on serial Chinese migration to the Americas creatively captures the interplay between diasporic movements and state efforts to define borders and control identities. Alien Nation is a genuinely original and broadly imagined masterwork.
