"The Philippines is one of the important stories of international development, too little discussed or understood outside the country. This superb volume by the people who understand the story best. Excellent economic analysis and comparative insights from Southeast Asia anchor andauthoritative narrative" --Ross Garnaut, Professor of Economics, Australian National University
