Alfred Flores Publishes First Book
September 6, 2023

Alfred Flores (PhD 2015), currently an Assistant Professor of Asian American Studies at Harvey Mudd College, has published his first book, Tip of the Spear: Land, Labor, and US Settler Militarism in Guahan, 1944-1962 (Cornell University Press, 2023). Flores argues that the US militarization of Guahan was based on a co-constitutive process that included CHamoru land dispossession and the racialization of civilian military labor that led to the transformation of the island.
