4058 Taylor, George E. THE PHILIPPINES AND THE UNITED STATES : PROBLEMS OF PARTNERSHIP
New York Frederick A. Praeger 1964 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Lightly chipped and soiled dust-jacket with sunned spine. ; 15 x 22 cm.; pg. x, 325 ; Published for the Council on Foreign Relations. Preface, introduction, index. "Examines the 'very special' US-Philippine relationship 'from the point of view of the United States' and from the perspective of the late cold war, in whose climate Taylor hopes 'that we can convince the Filipinos that what is good for the United States is good for the Philippines'. This task is not seen as easy. 'Some of the best Filipino minds are found on the left wing and are difficult to engage'. In the Filipino middle class there 'is very little Jeffersonian democracy and not much public spirit', and judge 'by the copybook standards of American democracy, Philippine shortcomings are only too obvious'. Taylor is not uncritical, however, of Uncle Sam's own record in the Islands; the Filipinos, he acknowledges, 'got off on a very bad start on the road to independence' as a result of a 'shabby' post-war policy which 'illustrated the tepid condition of US political and moral obligations to a former colony'.

The author, U Thein Pe Myint, known at the time as Thein Pe, served as a major political strategist in the formation of this policy of wartime cooperation as well as the external liaison officer of the Burmese resistance. The events he describes are part of the story of the antifascist resistance movements that developed in Southeast Asia after 1941. Although these movements have been largely ignored in the major studies of the war and its politics in the region, they have had important postwar repercussions. " Herbert #278; 0821407813
