Oriental Bodies charts the discursive transformations of U.S. immigration policy between 1875 and 1942. Drawing from American foreign policy, identity politics, post-structuralism, post-colonialism, and feminist theory, this fascinating study seeks to examine the construction of "Oriental bodies" within the emergence of U.S. immigration policy and explores how these constructions served political, social, and economic interests.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In a thorough examination of the intertwining of eugenics, geopolitics, and Orientalist discourse, James Tyner's Oriental Bodies analyzes the impacts of U.S. immigration and foreign policies and the exclusion of Asian immigrants, ranging from individual bodies and communities, to national and international scales. It connects the historical exclusion of Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino immigrants to the contemporary situation of Central America and Post-9/11 America. The book is an important addition to social science scholarship and geographical analysis on immigration, ethnicity, race, class, gender, and nation state building. -- Wei Li, Renmin University of China
In this crisp narrative of the evolution of U.S. actions against Chinese, Japanese and Filipino immigrants, James Tyner confirms his reputation as a leading scholar in geography and gender, and provides a timely reminder of the perils and pitfalls of post-9/11 patriotism. -- Michael Dear, University of California, Berkeley
