"Exciting in its scope and with an impressive list of contributors, American Studies Encounters the Middle East is a genuinely transnational work, one that promises to change the ways we think about global power, cultural borders, and political identity on a broad scale."--Amy Kaplan, University of Pennsylvania
"A necessary collection that provides historical contexts for the shifting and sometimes contradictory political and cultural role of the United States in the Middle East and North Africa, American Studies Encounters the Middle East fills the void in the scholarship and points to new paths in the field of American studies."--John Carlos Rowe, University of Southern California
