"How do Filipino migrants and their children fit in American society? What does it mean to be a Filipino – and a “Filipino family” – in the United States? What happens to the American Dream when, neither black nor white, Filipinos confront racism? What fault lines are marked by differences among Filipinos themselves? What does the Philippine mean for immigrants and succeeding generations? The provocative exploration of these questions in Yen Le Espiritu’s Homebound highlights the tensions, ironies, and potentials in transnational Filipino American lives. A must read." — Filomeno V. Aguilar, Editor, Philippine Studies and convenor, “Study on Migration and the Family,” Ateneo de Manila University

YEN LE ESPIRITU is Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of California, San Diego. She is the author of Asian American Women and Men: Labor, Laws, and Love (1997); Filipino American Lives (1995); and Asian American Panethnicity: Bridging Institutions and Identities (1992).
