"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
"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
"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
"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

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.
