Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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."
—Jonathan Y. Okamura, University of Hawai'i
