“By merging a rich national historiography with novel transnational trends, CuUnjieng Aboitiz accomplishes a provocative new interpretation of the Philippine revolution of 1896. Through a masterly juxtaposition of the rooted particulars of “place” with an evolving Pan-Asian sensibility, she reveals the revolution’s deep yet long overlooked Asian resonances.”
~Alfred W. McCoy, author of Policing America’s Empire: The United States, the Philippines, and Rise of the Surveillance State
