White Love and Other Events in Filipino History



Author: Vicente L. Rafael

IN THIS WIDE RANGING CULTURAL AND POLITICAL HISTORY of Filipinos and the Philippines, Vicente L. Rafael examines the period from the onset of U.S. colonialism in 1898 to the emergence of the Filipino diaspora in the 1990s. Self-consciously adopting the essay forms as a method with which to disrupt epic conception of Filipino history, Rafael treats in a condensed and concise manner clusters of historical detail and reflection that do not easily fit into a large whole. White Love and Other Events in Filipino History is thus a view of nationalism as an unstable production, as Rafael reveals how, under what circumstances, and with what effects the concepts of the nation has been produced and deployed in the Philippines.
