9789004173392: Chinese and Chinese Mestizos of Manila (Chinese Overseas)

Taking a micro-historical approach to the study of ethnic identities in the Philippines, this book offers a fascinating portrait of how Chinese merchant families in Manila negotiated the meanings of Chinese, Chinese mestizo, Catholic, and Filipino

From the Back Cover:

For centuries, the Chinese have been intermarrying with inhabitants of the Philippines, resulting in a creolized community of Chinese mestizos under the Spanish colonial regime. In contemporary Philippine society, the Chinese are seen as a racialized Other while descendants from early Chinese-Filipino intermarriages as Filipino. Previous scholarship attributes this development to the identification of Chinese mestizos with the equally Hispanicized and Catholic indios. Building on works in Chinese transnationalism and cultural anthropology, this book examines the everyday practices of Chinese merchant families in Manila from the 1860s to the 1930s. The result is a fascinating study of how families and individuals creatively negotiate their identities in ways that challenge our understanding of the genesis of ethnic identities in the Philippines. [This book] helps contribute to the revision of the existing literature on the Chinese and Chinese mestizos with a new perspective that highlights the emerging field of transnational studies. - Prof. Augusto Espiritu, "University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign" the author does an outstanding job and we recommend that citizens of the Philippine nation, whether they see themselves as Chinese or Filipino would do well to read this work and understand the origins of the racial stereotypes that influence the way they look at particular members of Philippine society, particularly in Manila. - Prof. Ellen Palanca and Prof. Clark Alejandrino, "Ateneo de Manila University"

Richard T. Chu, Ph.D. (2003) in History, University of Southern California, is Five College Assistant Professor at University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
