What does it mean to be ‘brown’ in the world today? The undocumented, the exploited, the legal and illegal migrants, the worker bees or modern day slaves of the world with little or no rights. A dismal look at how skin colour matters in the world’s hierarchy especially in the age of capitalism. Reading the chapter about migrant workers in Qatar is like entering a YA dystopian novel. A fascinating and eye opening read.

This was an eye opening read that delivered on its promise and brought to light issues I hadn't considered before. This will be one of my top recommended reads for anyone (and everyone) interested in the anthropology of our modern (and future) world.

This book is outstanding and so well researched. I have never thought of so many different aspects of the color brown, and so many challenges, concerns and hopes associated with it. I would define it as an academic read that requires your full engagement and attention to be able to truly appreciate all the nuances.
