Synopsis: HISTORY OF THE PHILIPPINES FROM INDIOS BRAVOS TO FILIPINOS, A

Over three million Filipino Americans now live in the US, but popular histories of this rich, complicated nation are still rare. From ancient Malay settlements to Spanish colonization, the American occupation and beyond, A "History of the Philippines" recasts various Philippine narratives with an eye for the layers of colonial and post-colonial history that have created this diverse and fascinating population. "A History of the Philippines" begins with the pre-Westernized Philippines in the 16th century and continues through the 1899 Philippine-American War, the nation's relationship with the United States' controlling presence, culminating with its independence in 1946 and two ongoing insurgencies, one Islamic and one Communist. Luis H. Francia creates an illuminating portrait that offers the reader valuable insights into the heart and soul of the modern Filipino, laying bare the multicultural, multiracial society of contemporary times.
