Praise for Race and Immigration(with Cara Bowman and Megan O'Leary):

"Race and Immigration tackles two of the most important issues facing American society and demonstrates how we cannot understand one without the other. In an insightful and clear examination of immigration laws, the occupations of immigrants, and the development of identities among newcomers and their children, the authors show how race shapes the fortunes of the newest Americans and how they in turn are shaping the meaning of race in America. This is a readable, intelligent overview of dynamic trends that are reshaping our society." -Mary C. Waters, Harvard University

"From the development of policy to immigrant incorporation and identities, this highly readable book makes clear that racial inequalities and boundaries are central to our understanding of immigration in the United States." -Nancy Foner, Hunter College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York

"While many scholars have written about race and immigration, this book uniquely brings contemporary structures of racism and immigration to a wide variety of readers. Amidst the political rhetoric of a 'post-racial society' the authors remind us that racism continues to exert deleterious effects on a variety of groups including immigrants. Equally important, this book reminds us about the racialization of two groups that remain less visible in the migration literature: highly skilled migrants and black immigrants. A very timely and useful book for scholars, practitioners, and a general audience of interested readers." -Bandana Purkayastha, University of Connecticut<

"Race and Immigration's serious examination of the relationship between immigration, race, and ethnicity is a welcome respite from the din of the acrimonious public debate on the costs and benefits of contemporary immigration. Chock-full of useful and up-to-date information on hotly contested immigration issues, it is a valuable resource for all those interested in social change." -Yen Le Espiritu, University of California, San Diego

Praise for Muslims in Motion:

"Kibria's groundbreaking study provides valuable insight into the process of transnational and diasporic identity formation among contemporary populations." -Steven J. Gold, Professor of Sociology at Michigan State University

"Kibra's research is theoretically sophisticated and right on target. Her well-designed interviews give the reader a vivid sense of the experience of being a Bangladeshi Muslim immigrant." -Karen Leonard, author of Locating Home: India's Hyderabadis Abroad

Praise for Becoming Asian American

"Nazli Kibria is one of the outstanding scholars on the sociology of Asian Americans, as well as in the general field of sociology of race and ethnicity. Becoming Asian American greatly advances knowledge of the dynamic interaction of race, ethnicity, and individual identity in American life. Her case studies offer a fresh, solid approach to discovering what it is like for immigrant racial minorities to become American in our time and indicates a great deal about the future of the American nation." -Reed Ueda, Tufts University

"Nazli Kibria presents a rich body of interview data on the changing and diverse nature of Asian-American identity, particularly among Chinese and Korean Americans, making a very solid and sustained contribution to the burgeoning literature within Asian-American studies. Through Kibria's wonderful interviews, we hear very interesting meditations on ethnic identity. She also does a good job of raising important sociological questions about race and immigration. This book may very well become a landmark in the field." -John Lie, University of Michigan

Praise for Family Tightrope

"This well-researched and gracefully written "participant-observer" study makes a significant contribution to knowledge about the impact of immigration and Americanization on family life... valuable for historians, social workers, educators, and others interested in issues of cultural adaptation and family life." -Maxine S. Seller, American Historical Review

"Kibria has produced the most insightful study to date about the accommodations, frustrations, and small victories that some Vietnamese have experienced as they reconstructed their shattered lives on American soil. . . . Family Tightrope is a clearly written and well-argued book that makes an important contribution not only to our knowledge of Vietnamese refugees but also to a more general understanding of immigrant adaptation and how ethnic identity is repeatedly reconstructed over time." -The Journal of American History
