Organized as a set of interrelated thematic essays, this book addresses key topics which will be of interest to the academic and non academic reader, such as the national level electoral politics, economic growth, the Philippine Chinese, law and order, opposition, the Left, and local and ethnic politics. Drawing on a wide variety of primary and secondary sources, as well as over a decade of research and work in the area, Hedman and Sidel provide a invaluable overview of the contemporary and historical scene of a much misunderstood part of Southeast Asia. It will fill an important gap in the literature for anyone interested in understanding the Philippines as well as students of politics, Asian studies, comparative politics, economics and sociology.
