They need nothing : Hispanic-Asian encounters of the colonial period / Robert Richmond Ellis.
Includes bibliographical references (p. [210]-226) and index.

Japanese and Spaniards in the Christian century -- The Middle Kingdom through Spanish eyes -- The quest for Cambodia -- Constructing the Philippines and contesting the legacy.

"The first comprehensive study of Spanish writings on East and Southeast Asia from the Spanish colonial period, "They Need Nothing" draws attention to many essential but understudied Spanish-language texts from this era. Robert Richmond Ellis provides an engaging, interdisciplinary examination of how these writings depict Asia and Asians as both similar to and different from Europe and Europeans, and details how East and Southeast Asians reacted to the Spanish presence in Asia.

"They Need Nothing" highlights texts related to Japan, China, Cambodia, and the Philippines, beginning with Francis Xavier's observations of Japan in the mid-sixteenth century and ending with JoseĢ Rizal's responses to the legacy of Spanish colonialism in the late nineteenth century. Ellis provides a groundbreaking expansion of the geographical and cultural contours of Hispanism that bridges the fields of European, Latin American, and Asian Studies."--pub. desc.
