Transpacific Engagements (SB)
Edited by Florina H. Capistrano-Baker and Meha Priyadarshini, the essays in this book address the resulting cultural and artistic exchanges with an emphasis on both the Spanish and American enterprises in the Asia-Pacific region. While most of the essays show this through the Philippine experience, we see how other parts of the world, notably South and Southeast Asia and Europe, were also participants impacted by these transpacific linkages. The goal is to convey the complexity of entangled networks of commercial, political, and religious interests that complicate the Spanish enterprise in the Pacific. The global reach of the volume is also reflected in the fact that the contributors are based in Asia, the Americas, and Europe.
