Frequently bought together
This book provides insights on the foundational roles of race, labor, and immigration in U.S. history. Baldoz produces a gripping narrative of nativist efforts to socially isolate and exclude Filipinos along with Filipino attempts at refusing such efforts. It truly deserves a wide readership.
--V. Rafael (American Historical Review)
A richly documented text that provides a dynamic interpretation of the experience of Filipino Americans in the twentieth century. It is an important book for its contribution to the history of immigration and labor and for its sensitive treatment of the contested categorizations of race, nationality and rights.
--J. Shih, Ethnic and Racial Studies
“A scrupulously researched and compellingly argued work of historical sociology. Baldoz has an eye for the telling details that help to illuminate larger patterns of American empire, racial formation, and the politics of immigration. This elegant book makes a quantum leap by integrating Filipino and Filipino American scholarship and will surely become a classic in racial and ethnic studies.”
-Evelyn Nakano Glenn,author of Forced to Care: Coercion and Caregiving in America
“Rigorously argued and deeply documented, The Third Asiatic Invasion is an urgent and necessary book on how race and empire played out in the Filipino experience in America. Baldoz redefines how we should study race, moving beyond the banal assertion of race as a social construction to explain the continuous process of race and boundary making and remaking. Bravo!”
-Eduardo Bonilla-Silva,author of Racism Without Racists
"Baldoz has made a difficult period in the Filipino American saga understandable."
The Third Asiatic Invasion is a welcome change because it does not examine the assimilability of Filipino immigrants, but focuses on what their migration reveals about the racialized economic, cultural, and political foundations of the United States.... a well researched book.
