I’m pretty chuffed at these two endorsements we have received for our forthcoming book, Race, Gender and the Body in British Immigration Control: Subject to Examination (Palgrave Macmillan) and would like to share them with you all:
“An important and revelatory study of a shameful episode in 20th century British immigration history that was shaped by imperial racism.” – Alan Travis, Home Affairs Editor, The Guardian
“It is impossible to over-estimate the importance of Smith and Marmo’s study. Their chilling documentation of abuses permitted – and vigorously denied – by the Home Office represents feminist scholarship at its best.” – Philippa Levine, Mary Helen Thompson Centennial Professor in the Humanities, University of Texas at Austin, US
These endorsements are up on the Palgrave website at the moment and remember that you can pre-order the book now.
