  2. Hi Tanya - the book looks great! I wound encourage you to consider including information about the Asian Indian experience (e.g. Bhagat Singh Thind and Punjabis in California) to your section on race and citizenship, particularly how these policies influenced the definition of "Aryan" in the early 20th century.
