about this book

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

Author Stanley Karnow won the Pulitzer Prize for this account of America’s experience in the Philippines. Karnow focuses on the relationship that has existed between the two nations since the U.S. acquired the country from Spain in 1898, examining how we have sought to remake the Philippines “in our own image”–an experiment marked from the outset by blundering, ignorance, and mutual misunderstanding. With 16 pages of photos.

“The best popular history of America’s nine-decade relationship with the Philippines.... Excellent.”–The Washington Post Book World

“Stanley Karnow has written the ultimate book–brilliant, panoramic, engrossing–about American behavior overseas in the twentieth century.”–The Boston Sunday Globe

“An impressively researched study.”–The New Republic
