David Brody’s Visualizing American Empire is an-other publication that enriches further the historical ma-terials dealing with Philippine-American relations. The book may be considered non-traditional because it moves away from political themes and focuses instead on the cultural and visual aspects of the colonial relationship. It is commendable because it discusses side by side the cul-tural and social impact of American culture on Filipinos and the orientalism and Filipinization that happened in the American society.

The tyrannical empire of the Assyrians was replaced (6th–4th century BCE) by that of the Persians, in strong contrast to the Assyrian in its liberal treatment of subjected peoples, assuring it long duration. The Philippines cost the United States much more than expected because of military action against rebels.

In 1899 an American could open a newspaper and find outrageous images, such as an American soldier being injected with leprosy by Filipino insurgents. These kinds of hyperbolic accounts, David Brody argues in this illuminating book, were just one element of the visual and material culture that played an integral role in debates about empire in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century America.Visualizing American Empire explores the ways visual imagery and design shaped the political and cultural landscape. Drawing on a myriad of sources—including photographs, tattoos, the decorative arts, the popular press, maps, parades, and material from world’s fairs and urban planners—Brody offers a distinctive perspective on American imperialism. Exploring the period leading up to the Spanish-American War, as well as beyond it, Brody argues that the way Americans visualized the Orient greatly influenced the fantasies of colonial domestication that would play out in the Philippines. Throughout, Brody insightfully examines visual culture’s integral role in the machinery that runs the colonial engine. The result is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the United States, art, design, or empire.

Comments to eBook Visualizing American Empire: Orientalism and Imperialism in the Philippines
Darksinger
This book is pretty thin but managed to pack a lot of argument into a few words. Everything was pretty strong, though the chapters about maps were a little less tightly fit into the rest of the book, and a couple of my friends thought the first chapter was more entertaining than representative of larger trends. I think this would be a very good edition to any history of the American West or imperialism, and it's one of the few books I know of that really concentrate on bringing empire home rather than what Americans were doing abroad. It's also one of the better examples of interdisciplinary "American Studies."

Having previously read David Brody's articles in Prospects and other journals I've been eager to read his latest book. No surprise that Brody's work is well-researched, innovative, pleasurable to read, and rich with illustrations that Brody deftly analyzes to elicit stunning conclusions. Well done David!
