In their chronological narrative of Filipino political development from the 14th to the 21st century, Abinales (Southeast Asian studies, Kyoto U., Japan) and Amoroso (National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies, Japan) explore the dilemmas of state-society relations. They discuss the pressure for a strong state in order to maintain security and economic infrastructure, while support for such a state is simultaneously undermined by authoritarianism and corruption. Their historical periodization acknowledges the Southeast Asian connections of the Philippines, setting the narrative within regional context. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
