The MacArthur Highway and Other Relics of American Empire in the Philippines free pdf It has been more than a century since the American conquest and subsequent annexation of the Philippines. Although the nation was given its independence in 1946, American cultural authority remains. "The MacArthur Highway and Other Relics of American Empire in the Philippines" retraces the route Gen. Douglas MacArthur took during his liberation of the country in 1944-45. While following MacArthur's footsteps, Joseph McCallus provides a historical and geographical account of this iconic soldier's military career, accompanied by a description of the contemporary Philippine landscape. McCallus uses the past and the present to explore how America and MacArthur himself influenced the country's political and educational systems and language as well as the ramifications of the continued U.S. military presence and the effects of globalization on traditional Filipino society. This fascinating book also examines the Americans' influence on its architecture, and he introduces the American expatriate business community - people who have lived in the Philippines for decades and continue to help shape the nation. "The MacArthur Highway" is an absorbing look at how American military intervention and colonial rule have indelibly shaped a nation decades after the fact.
