Reviews

'Webb sheds light on the unsung connection between democratic ambivalence in the Philippines and American imperialism... [Chasing Freedom] may spark great interest among students of political science, history, and development studies. Webb's original contribution to Philippine historiography and democratic theory deserves further research and interest, especially when pieces of historical evidence are often left unacknowledged to deliberately cement today's dominant narratives.' John Romer M. Capurcos, Philippine Political Science Journal


"Webb makes an original contribution to the field by offering a nuanced analysis of Filipino middle-class responses to democracy and linking this to the period of 'democratic tutelage' under American colonial rule." Professor Mina Roces, Series Editor


"Webb convincingly argues that to understand the middle class's difficult relationship to democracy, one needs to examine over long stretches of time what members of the middle class have thought about democracy - something that is not often done. Webb thus develops in this book a novel and highly fruitful approach that constitutes a significant contribution to the study of democracy." Frederic Schaffer, Professor of Political Science at University of Massachusetts Amherst.
