"Destabilizing formulaic transnational mobility stories that rely on an epic departure-and-return script, Aizura offers a powerful challenge to consider the wild movements of minor mobilities and the potentiality of staying in place." -- Emmanuel David * TSQ *
"[This] book evokes a pondering of how Transgender Studies as a field will move itself forward. Aizura's own urging to give a voice to transgender people who straddle the margins of privileged trans-normativity reiterates the field's mission of breaking new paths for inclusivity, intersectionality, and independence from myopic visions of what being transgender means today." -- Muriel Vernon * Medical Anthropology Quarterly *
"Mobile Subjects is intentional and thoughtful in its application of interdisciplinary research. . . . Through his multi-method and intersectional approach, Aizura brings forth a conversation that simultaneously accounts for the impact of gender, race, and class on seeking out and obtaining gender reassignment technologies, as well as the varying policies, practices, and vernacular inherent to transnational study." -- Jacob Barry * Journal of Critical Race Inquiry *
"Mobile Subjects provides new insights relevant and challenging for those interested in a range of topics and methodologies. This is a required read for our times...."-- Lars Olav Aaberg * newbooks.asia *
