The Filipino-american War, 1899-1913
|Author||Samuel K. Tan|
|Dimension||7 x 10, 800g|
This volume on the Filipino-American war is an attempt to bring together, in a general perspective, the struggle and travail of the Filipino people after their shortlived emancipation from over three hundred years of Spanish rule.
Important in this task is not only the survey of a reasonable amount of both primary and secondary sources on the war, but also the integration of the otherwise neglected struggle of the non-Christian sector especially that of the Filipino Muslims.
There is no pretension to exhaustiveness in this effort to present a Filipino view of a war that was neither desired nor welcomed but had to be fought regardless of the costs and consequences.
It is expected that this account of a tragic moment in Philippine history will bring back memories of Filipino patriotism and heroism from which nation-building can derive inspiration and direction.
