"The wide-ranging and provocative pieces collected in Syncretism & Survival clarify some of the many errors and misconceptions in the conversation about race, nation, and the politics that try to define them. At the same time, the sophisticated, fearless work included in this anthology pushes the dialogue into a more robust, aware, and 21st century way of thinking about our myriad identities and communities. This is a formidable and necessary compendium, one that offers new perspectives on and definitions for some of our most problematic cultural and social constructions."           —Adrian Matejka, author of The Big Smoke
