"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
