The Philippine Problem

By Major William H. Anderson
Putnam, 1939
338 pp. $3.00

The author, who went to the Philippines with the Army in 1898, has spent the last forty years there as a businessman. His viewpoint, different from that usual in books on the islands, is summarized in his description of American policy as a "hodgepodge of missionary ardor, altruistic motives, irresolute nationalism and corroding paternalism." This book would have profited from more careful editing and an index.
