In this compelling study, Damani J. Partridge explores citizenship andexclusion in Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall. That event seemed to usherin a new era of universal freedom, but post-reunification transformations of Germansociety have in fact produced noncitizens: non-white and "foreign" Germanswho are simultaneously portrayed as part of the nation and excluded from fullcitizenship. Partridge considers the situation of Vietnamese guest workers"left behind" in the former East Germany; images of hypersexualized blackbodies reproduced in popular culture and intimate relationships; and debates aboutthe use of the headscarf by Muslim students and teachers. In these and other cases, which regularly provoke violence against those perceived to be different, he showsthat German national and European projects are complicit in the production ofdistinctly European noncitizens. The author's experiences as an African Americanresearcher become a substantive part of the analysis.
