"By combining rich historical detail with broader theories of meaning, culture, and colonialism, the author provides an innovative study of the hidden intersections of political power and cultural meaning-making in Americas earliest overseas empire. An original work that introduces readers to the value of using the comparative method in investigating the impact of colonialism on Filipino and Puerto Rican elites, and a fine example of multidisciplinary research where history and sociology effortlessly interact with each other." - P.N. Abinales.
