BETRAYAL IN THE PHILIPPINES

A vindictive expose of America's betrayal of the loyalist Filipinos during Japanese occupation, written by a native journalist who saw guerilla defense, puppet rulers, and the post-war rise to power of the collaborationists. This is a strong indictment of President Roxas, his premature surrender to the Jape, his courtship of quislings Vargas and Laurel, his ride into power with the support of feudal landlord and vested interests, linked with American big business. As accessories, Abaya specifically names for his ""liberation"" of Roxas, for his weak-kneed, obscure stand on , for his re-examination movement, American policy generally for its and political stranglehold on the ""independent"" Philippines Well-documented, though leftist reporting.
