About this item

Americans stationed in conquered Philippines during the early 20th century were confused when their offspring by native Filipinas were referred to as American mestizos, says Molnar, because they were only familiar with the racial categories of white and other. He describes how the Philippines became not just another jewel in the burgeoning American military and economic empire, but a crucible where both colonizer and colonized forged new identities. His topics include drawing the color line in the Philippines: white and black bachelor colonization and initial reactions to the emergence of the American mestizos, Leonard Wood and the American Guardian Association: resolving the American mestizo "problem" in the Philippines, reaction to the concept of the American mestizo in the US, and non-coalesced groups and the "disappearance" of the American mestizo.
