Adopted Colors Aug 16, 2008
This book does a lovely job of navigating a tricky subject: how we are to understand individuals who advocate for peoples and causes not (or at least not obviously) their own. Kim explains such advocacy as not only escapist, but as born out of a passionate sense of commitment, out of a desire, indeed, to be obligated, committed, involved. Through its focus on adoption -- adoption into families and communities and adoption of causes and identities -- Adopted Colors provocatively recasts longstanding debates about the perils and possibilities of identity, especially ethnic and national identity. It also contributes to discussions about the roles played by women and transnational networks in processes of nation-building.
Insightful commentary on nationality and identity Mar 25, 2008
Enthralling. This is a magnificent landscape of insights distilled from the canon of English literature. Transporting the reader to a richly colored world of the past, the author brings old questions of identity and nationality to life and positions them to foreshadow emergent nationalism questions for the future.
