In exploring an array of intimacies between strangers, this book reveals how human relationships, dignity, and collaborations are experienced among global migrants. Nayan Shah takes a novel approach by examining both the legal histories of hundreds of interracial marriages involving South Asians and the countless court cases documenting illicit sexual contact between South Asian men and white, Chinese, and Native American men. Shah illuminates a stunning, transient world of heterogeneous social relations. At the same time, he demonstrates how the United States and Canada, in collusion with each other, actively sought to exclude and dispossess nonwhite "races." Stranger Intimacyreveals the intersections between capitalism, the state's treatment of immigrants, sexual citizenship, and racism in the first half of the twentieth century.
