Africans in China:

A Sociocultural Study and Its Implications for Africa-China Relations
Adams Bodomo
ISBN: 9781604977905

"The issues covered in this book are remarkable. The lucidity and ease with which the narrative runs is masterly.

Alienglish:

Eastern Diasporas in Anglo-American Tongues
Sheng-mei Ma
ISBN: 9781604978681

English has long emerged as the lingua franca of globalization but has been somehow estranged in the hands or mouths of aliens, from Joseph Conrad to Chang-rae Lee. Haltingly, their alien characters come to speak in the Anglo-American tongue, yet what emerges is skewed by accents, syntax, body language, and nonstandard contextual references—an uncanny, off-kilter language best described as Alienglish. Alienglish arrays itself on a spectrum from English’s Alien to Alien’s English, from white representations of the Other to aliens’ self-representations. Read More..

Anglophone Literatures in the Asian Diaspora:

Literary Transnationalism and Translingual Migrations
Karen An-hwei Lee
ISBN: 9781604978605

"The use of concepts such as translation and migration in a way that allows flexibility shows Lee’s depth of knowledge in such areas, and her confidence in applying it to literary criticism. The close textual analysis is also carefully developed, convincing and allows Lee to draw highly insightful and fascinating conclusions. Finally, she situates her work in a wider field that show just how relevant literary scholarship can be to current scholarly debates, as well as to the contemporary world ... What Lee’s monograph aims to do is ambitious, and it certainly succeeds at this goal." – International Journal of Comparative Literature and Translation Studies Read More..
