“The Third Asiatic Invasion is a singular contribution to our understanding of both US and Philippine national histories as irrevocably linked to the vicissitudes of colonial power, imperial projects, and nationalist conflict. The particular strengths and considerable significance of The Third Asiatic Invasion lie in the ways it addresses these questions with a clear eye for the telling details with which to fashion important insights into the foundational roles of race, labor, and immigration in US imperial and national history. It truly deserves a wide readership.”
