Summary:
"Much has been written about the relationships between European men and local women in Asia, Africa, and Latin America during the heyday of western imperialism. But scholars have given slight attention to "interracial" relationships in a non-western country that avoided colonization, was regarded by Europeans as "white," and was generally able to maintain control over resident foreign male communities.
