Program Abstract: "Using the case studies of American involvement with China and the Philippines, this program examines American attitudes toward Asia from 1776 to the present. The merchants, missionaries, and Marines-- however well intentioned--often saw in Asia and Asians what they wanted to see, rather than the realities of those cultures and peoples."
