Positively No Filipinos Allowed: Building Communities and Discourse (Asian American History & Culture) (Hardcover)
From the perspectives of ethnic studies, history, literary criticism, and legal studies, the original essays in this volume examine the ways in which the colonial history of the Philippines has shaped Filipino American identity, culture, and community formation. The contributors address the dearth of scholarship in the field as well as show how an understanding of this complex history provides a foundation for new theoretical frameworks for Filipino American studies.
"The primary strength of Positively No Filipinos Allowed is its overall theoretical and critical approach to analysis of the historical and contemporary Filipino experience in the United States. This is the ground-breaking anthology for which many scholars and students have been waiting decades. It will be viewed as the major edited work on Filipino Americans for years to come."
