Published just after WW2, Hernando Abaya gave many important facts that we Filipinos ought to know. He starts off with the Japanese collaborators among the political elite during WW2. He raises the question of the kind of political independence America granted to us in July 4, 1946. He raises the question whether America granted us economic freedom (surely not with the strings attached to the granting of "independence.")Hernando Abaya makes us aware of the support our ruling elite gets from America since independence to continue its socioeconomic-political control over our country, national institutions and people; which continues to this day and will continue to the foreseeable future, partly because of massive ignorance of historical facts, as exposed in this book published 63 years ago!
