Book Review of “Pinoy Capital”

I have Part I of a two part book review of Benito M. Vergara’s book Pinoy Capital: The Filipino Nation in Daly City at my blog The Mustard Seed:

BenitoSunny” M. Vergara’s ethnographic study of Filipinos in Daly City is a very welcomed and much needed academic work centering on one of the more predominate Filipino communities within the United States, Daly City (which lies on the southern border of San Francisco).  When one looks at the back cover one sees a quote by Martin Manalansan who states that “Pinoy Capital is a colorful and nuanced ethnographic foray into the social institutions and quotidian lives of Filipino Americans living in Daly City.”
