Publisher's Summary

Strategically located, the Philippine Islands have been one of the keys to American policy in the Pacific. But this loose island chain has a better history, vacillating between oppression and rebellion. America's military installations here ensure that she will be caught in any Filipino conflict.

not about the Philippines exactly

I listened to the first 2 minutes of this book. likely the quickest I've ever given up reading anything. it starts with the American conquest of the Philippines. I skipped around a bit hoping it would talk about the country itself but it was all centered around Europe and the Americans. if you are interested in these relationships this may be of use to you.

brief history

it went over the history before the region being named to more modern time glossed over this histroy but stuck to milestones well.
