The Philippines –– a vast archipelago consisting of over 7,000 islands and islets, with a land area of more than 114,000 square miles--occupies a uniquely sensitive geopolitical position. For thousands of years, the Islands have had intimate contact with the Asian mainland; for over four centuries, they were under Western domination, first by Spain, then by the United States.

This book traces the complex history of the Philippines from her earliest beginnings to her current role on the world scene. Included is a probing and objective assessment of her people, her culture, her politics, and her problems. Written by an outstanding Filipino scholar and historian, it is a work designed to provide essential information about a nation which today stands as one of the crucial test-cases of democracy in Asia.
