An intensive study of the growth of civil government in the islands, and even duller than it sounds. A ponderous, authoritative, well documented record of Filipino Congressional activity. The author is strongly Pro-Filipino and believes that their standards will eventually prevail over the American influence in government. A mass of information probably not available elsewhere, such as the retirement system for public school teachers, history of their Legislature since 1907, etc. --but the facts seem unrelated to civil government in other parts of the world and prove little.
