This second edition, a greatly expanded and updated version of the first, is essential reading for those interested in Asia, as well as the millions of Filipinos who have made their homes abroad. The A to Z of the Philippines provides more than 400 hundred entries on important persons, places, events, and institutions, as well as salient economic, social and cultural aspects.

May Kyi Win (1948-2002) was former associate professor and curator of the Donn V. Hart Southeast Asia Collection at Northern Illinois University...
