"...expand[s] and broaden[s] the canon of Asian North American literature... Day’s Alien Capital enable[s] us to understand the complexities of racialization beyond colonial/victims, black/white, dominant/minor binaries... articulate, intelligent addition to Canadian theory and criticism." — Eleanor Ty, Canadian Literature

"Through often unexpected and dazzling analyses, Iyko Day considers a transnational U.S.–Canada archive that explores how Asian immigrants came to represent the abstraction of capital, bringing to the fore a history of settler colonialism that is often ignored in accounts of Asian immigration and racialization. Alien Capital is sure to be a very important, influential, and widely read book." — David L. Eng, author of, The Feeling of Kinship: Queer Liberalism and the Racialization of Intimacy
"Featuring elegant and erudite readings of an impressive variety of texts by Asian artists from the United States and Canada alongside brilliant theoretical analyses of settler colonialism and racial capital, Iyko Day's Alien Capital is an immensely important and innovative work. With groundbreaking and profound interventions, Day convincingly demonstrates that we cannot fully understand settler colonialism without considering Asian racialization." — Grace Kyungwon Hong, author of, Death beyond Disavowal: The Impossible Politics of Difference
