This book is a a critical examination of the role that immigrant intellectuals play in facilitating the global domination of American imperialism.*BR**BR*In his pioneering book about the relationship between race and colonialism, Black Skin, White Masks, Frantz Fanon explored the traumatic consequences of the sense of inferiority that colonised people felt. Brown Skin, White Masks picks up where Fanon left off, and extends Fanon's insights as they apply to today's world.*BR**BR*Dabashi shows how intellectuals who migrate to the West are often used by the imperial powers to misrepresent their home countries. Just as many Iraqi exiles were used to justify the invasion of Iraq, Dabashi demonstrates that this is a common phenomenon, and examines why and how so many immigrant intellectuals help to sustain imperialism.

"The great value of Dabashi's book rests in unmasking the dubious role "native informers" play in U.S. society....["Brown Skin, White Masks"] will hopefully have a similar revolutionizing impact like Fanons famous "Black Skin, White Masks."" -- Ludwig Watzal, "International News Magazine"
