"The book should be essential reading for scholars studying the intersection of Philippine history and the Asian American diaspora in the United States." - Jody Blanco American Historical Review "[Five Faces of Exile] has much to interest and to provoke readers... present[ed] in refreshingly readable, dutifully documented prose. The book holds a mirror up to the complex situation of the transnational writer, and the faces it reveals are bathed in various shades of light and dark... Espiritu must be credited for making us look and learn." - Philippine Studies "Thoroughly researched on both sides of the Pacific...Five Faces of Exile firmly grounds its subjects in a century of colonialism, war, independence, and dictatorship." - Journal of American History
