Victor Bascara, Associate Professor of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, reviews The Third Asiatic Invasion: Empire and Migration in Filipino America, 1898-1846. The book is a sociological history of Filipino America dealing with empire, racialization, nationalisms, assimilation, “benevolent independence,” and anti-miscegenation law. The resulting text is a study in state power and belonging, with particular emphasis on the legal conditions and instruments of American empire regarding the Philippines.
