Abstract

In Western Privilege: Work, Intimacy, and Postcolonial Hierarchies in Dubai, Amélie Le Renard explores the organisation of social life in Dubai, focusing on the experiences of mobile Western passport holders and the advantages and identifications that construct the status of a ‘Westerner’. Providing insights into how Westernness is conditioned and shaped by gender, race and class, this book is essential reading for scholars of migration as well as ethnic and race studies, writes Liina Mustonen. Western Privilege: Work, Intimacy, and Postcolonial Hierarchies in Dubai. Amélie Le Renard (trans. by Jane Kuntz). Stanford University Press. 2021.
