Overview

The Philippines belong to one of the most rapidly developing parts of the world, and it is impossible to understand Asia without it. This second edition, a greatly expanded and updated version of the first, is essential reading for those interested in Asia, as well as the millions of Filipinos who have made their homes abroad. The dictionary provides more than 400 hundred entries on important persons, places, events, and institutions, as well as salient economic, social and cultural aspects. The more than four centuries of the Philippines history covered by Guillermo, including the periods of Spanish and American dominance over the country, is neatly wrapped up in an introduction, clearly laid out in a chronology, complemented with statistical data in the appendix, and concluded with a bibliography allowing further research and study.
