""Nicole Constable has produced a splendid sequel to her much-praised Maid to Order in Hong Kong. Constable's sensitive ethnography and her international scope insures that we see every Filipino and Chinese woman as a thinking, feeling person, and every American man who is her pen pal and sometimes future husband as far more than a mere cartoon character. Romance on a Global Stage wonderfully complicates the genderings and globalizings of power and emotions.""â¿¿Cynthia Enloe, author of Bananas, Beaches and Bases ""The rise of feminism in North America has been paralleled by a growth in marriages between Western men and women from the global periphery. Constable's fascinating study explores the multiple desires at work, revealing the anti-feminist reason and feminist surprises in these global romances.""â¿¿Aihwa Ong, author of Buddha Is Hiding: Refugees, Citizenship, the New America ""Constable adds a new map to the cartographies of desire in this nuanced and fresh account of 'mail-order marriage.' Her original work carefully attends to emotion, sex, and political economy, offering a complex account of gender, marriage, and globalization.""â¿¿Carole S. Vance, author of Pleasure and Danger: Exploring Female Sexuality ""This innovative and compassionate work maps new formations of desire in the context of globalization. Constable breaks through the stereotypes about transnational pen-pal marriages to enable us to see, in an ethnographically detailed way, how agency and desire are shaped by uneven economic development and how cyber-technologies figure in the production of new global imaginaries.""â¿¿Ann Anagnost, author of National Past-times: Narrative, Representation, and Power in Modern China ""Constable is a talented and perceptive anthropologist who has mastered the use of the web both as a research tool and a topic of research. Her sensible and timely examination of transnational marriages of American men with women from the Philippines and China relentlessly debunks commonly-held tales about submissive (or manipulative) Asian women and wealthy (or abusive) American men.""â¿¿Jean-Paul Dumont, author of Visayan Vignettes: Ethnographic Traces of a Philippine Island
