Essays on the Philippines and the Pacific Rim 1986 - 1992


The essays here cast light on the period between 1986 and 1992 which offered watershed events in the Philippine scenario and within a wider community of nations in the Pacific rim.
Written in robust style, the discourses of Dr. Jose P. Leviste, Jr. captures in paper the collective consciousness of key players in the transformation that took place after the 1986 people power revolution in the Philippines.
Engaging the reader to perceive the dynamics of U.S. foreign policy in the Philippines, he presents a wider spectrum involving the political evaporation of the Cold War and belligerent regional blocs. And, in the context of the aftermath status quo, with the repercussions in the colonies or neo-colonies that prompted the emergence of a new world order, the formation of new regional associations and economic blocs, Dr. Leviste looks into the issue of American military facilities in the country.
Written when the brunt of transition was freshly felt, these discourses were produced in Dr. Levistes reflective respites after many years of a dedicated public career. The impact of these historic events on Philippine society lies at the centerbecause we never stop hoping to attain a democracy that brings economic prosperity.
