Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is the rich variety of sources, the many ways of expressing the dilemma and duality of the "special relationship," that is the strength in this volume."

-H-Net

"An extraordinary collection of literary, artistic, and historical work which fills the huge gap in what Americans know about their nation's relationship to the Philippines, in war and peace."

-Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"Through forceful poems, archival phots, art, visual essays, plays and memoirs, three dozen contributors. . .weigh in against the glossed over or repressed history of the war and its aftermath in the Philippines. . . . If more textbooks were written like this, there might be fewer wars."

-The Japan Times

"[An] undercurrent of urgency is still true today and it runs through the pages of this anthology, brilliantly organized by Shaw and Francia. It is truly an anthology that "breathes." And I too hope that Vestiges of War will inspire others to engage in similar projects and expand on what the editors have initiated."

-American Studies International

"The collection illuminates Filipinos' long and complicated relationship with the United States through the successive tragedies of paleo-, neo-, and postcolonialism."

-The Journal of American History

Am researching a book on the life of David Fagen, whose story is one of the many presented in this remarkable book about the bloody, unnecessary, Philippine-American War at the turn of the 20th century. Read it and you'll understand why we Yankees are loved and hated in that beautiful but tragically dysfunctional land.

A large collection of stories, essays, articles, photos, art and other cultural material beautifully assembled as an academic collection of cultural perspectives aimed at both a Philippine and American readership. This is a serious work which explains, I think, more about the complexity of Philippine nationalism and its many assets and flaws, than any other work I've been priveliged to absorb. Visually stunning.
