Colonel Romulo is a leading Filipino editor who served on General MacArthur's staff during the Bataan campaign and wrote about it eloquently in his "I Saw the Fall of the Philippines." In the present book he discusses the relations between the Occident and Orient -- politically and socially. Though not uncritical of American behavior in the Philippines, he finds it far superior to that of Britain, Holland and France in Asia. Some may feel that his criticisms of the latter Powers are occasionally undiscriminating.
