San Juan shows that a vibrant critical pedagogy can be found among a people seeking national liberation...[His] essays foreground important issues such as language, indigenous struggle, and nationalism as useful sites for a project of humanization in the Philippines. - Manila Indymedia "This book provides a panoramic exposition on the Philippine experience over the past century. The author offers a new articulation of the deeper-level experience, masterfully appropriating colonial discourse and turning it in on itself." - Sam Noumoff, McGill University, Montreal"E. San Juan, Jr. is the world authority on the Filipino radical writer Carlos Bulosan. In U.S. Imperialism and Revolution in the Philippines , he turns his passion and commitment to a defiant reconsideration of the brutal subjugation of the Philippines by the United States, and offers a vision for future emancipation." - Alan Wald, Professor of English Literature, University of Michigan, and author of Trinity of Passion: The U.S. Literary Left and the Anti-Fascist Crusade "America's least known imperial venture has finally found a multi-dimensional scholar and critic who is up to the challenge of its many overlapping horrors. Reading San Juan's superb account is a mind bending and stomach churning experience. Obviously something to be avoided; unless you want to understand how the world created by the Washington-Wall Street axis really works.Highest recommendation!" - Bertell Ollman, Professor of Politics, New York University, and author of Alienation and Dance of the Dialectic: Steps in Marx's Method
