Summary Drawing on ten years of interviews and ethnographic and archival research, this work delves into the ways Filipinos in Hawai'i have balanced their pursuit of upward mobility and mainstream acceptance with a desire to keep their Filipino identity. In particular, the text speaks to the processes of identity making and the politics of representation among immigrant communities striving to resist marginalization in a globalized, transnational era
