An Anarchy of Families
First published in 1994, this pioneering volume reveals how the power of the country's family-based oligarchy both derives from and contributes to a weak Philippine state. From provincial warlords to modern managers, prominent Filipino leaders have fused family, politics and business to compromise public institutions and amass private wealth - a historic pattern that persists to the present.
