'The 'White Other' in American Intermarriage Stories, 1945-2008 is the first study to focus on the white image in the ethnic mind. By mapping three generations of marriage narratives as filtered through a century's worth of ethnic theories, Cardon reveals a paradigm shift in the wake of '60s ethnic revivals. From I Love Lucy to Portnoy's Complaint to The Joy Luck Club, Cardon shows the 'emptying out' of whiteness as opposed to the rich cultural dowry of the ethnic partner. This is an accessible and evocative study for college classroom discussions about culture, ethnicity, whiteness, and the Other.' - Joel Dinerstein, Director of American Studies, Tulane University, US
