This book uses Philippine sources released since the 1986 revolution and recently declassified U.S. records to reveal a complex structure that allowed both nations to attain their most cherished goals while sacrificing interests of lesser importance. The author rejects the myth that U.S. policy supported economic exploitation, finding instead that American business interests were docile bystanders sacrificed to U.S. strategic imperatives.
