Stanley Karnow, author of In Our Image: America’s Empire in the Philippines, traces America’s colonial experience in the Philippines. Beginning with the U.S. victory over the Spanish at Manila in 1898, Karnow discusses the process of “Americanization” and the impact of U.S. policies on the Philippines. Significant events such as the influence of General Douglas MacArthur, the rise and reign of President Marcos, and the revolution that brought President Corazon Aquino to power are examined. Mr. Karnow concludes by predicting what will happen to the Philippines in the next 10-20 years. Mr. Karnow also talked about his 1983 book, Vietnam: A History. close
