In American Tropics, Allan Punzalan Isaac explores American fantasies about the Philippines and other “unincorporated” parts of the U.S. nation that obscure the contradictions of a democratic country possessing colonies. Isaac examines the American empire's images of the Philippines in Hollywood films such as Blue Hawaii and novels such as Carlos Bulosan's America Is in the Heart and Jessica Hagedorn's Dogeaters.
