Sara L. Friedman目前為美國印第安納大學人類學與性別研究副教授。研究專長為性別研究,精通中文的她,長期觀察台灣社會外籍配偶與中國大陸籍配偶等議題。與耶魯大學社會學教授Deborah S. Davis教授合著《Wives, Husbands, and Lovers: Marriage and Sexuality in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Urban China》,及著有《Intimate Politics: Marriage, the Market, and State Power in Southeastern China》。

Exceptional States examines new configurations of marriage, immigration, and sovereignty emerging in an increasingly mobile Asia where Cold War legacies continue to shape contemporary political struggles over sovereignty and citizenship. Focused on marital immigration from China to Taiwan, the book documents the struggles of these women and men as they seek acceptance and recognition in their new home. Through tracing parallels between the predicaments of Chinese marital immigrants and the uncertain future of the Taiwan nation-state, the book shows how intimate attachments and emotional investments infuse the governmental practices of Taiwanese bureaucrats charged with regulating immigration and producing citizenship and sovereignty. Its attention to a group of immigrants whose exceptional status has become necessary to Taiwan’s national integrity exposes the social, political, and subjective consequences of life on the margins of citizenship and sovereignty.
