In Our Image

ebook
"A brilliant, coherent social and political overview spanning three turbulent centuries."—San Francisco Chronicle

Stanley Karnow won the Pulitzer Prize for this account of America's imperial experience in the Philippines. In a swiftly paced, brilliantly vivid narrative, Karnow focuses on the relationship that has existed between the two nations since the United States acquired the country from Spain in 1898, examining how we have sought to remake the Philippines "in our image," an experiment marked from the outset by blundering, ignorance, and mutual misunderstanding.

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

"A page-turning story and authoritative history."The New York Times

"Perhaps the best journalist writing on Asian affairs."Newsweek
