Summary: Phiip R. Reilly is a physician, geneticist and a lawyer. He is also a storyteller. His new book, The Strongest Boy in the World;How Genetic Information is Reshaping Our Lives, contains twenty engaging stories, each of which offers the reader a delightful excursion that will expand his world view. As tour guide, Reilly is passionately committed to ensuring that intriguing discoveries lie around every bend in the road. In this new work, Linda España-Maram analyz
es the politics of popular culture in the lives of Filipino laborers in Los Angeles's Little Manila, from the 1920s to the 1940s. The Filipinos' participation in leisure activities, including the thrills of Chinatown's gambling dens, boxing matches, and the sensual pleasures of dancing with white women in taxi dance halls sent legislators, reformers, and police forces scurrying to contain public displays of Filipino virility. But as España-Maram argues, Filipino workers, by flaunting "improper" behavior, established niches of autonomy where they could defy racist attitudes and shape an immigrant identity based on youth, ethnicity, and notions of heterosexual masculinity within the confines of a working class.

España-Maram takes this history one step further by examining the relationships among Filipinos and other Angeleños of color, including the Chinese, Mexican Americans, and African Americans. Drawing on oral histories and previously untapped archival records, España-Maram provides an innovative and engaging perspective on Filipino immigrant experiences.
