Apples and Ampalaya
Apples and Ampalaya: Bittersweet Glimpses of the American Period in the Philippines by Augusto de Viana captures how the Philippines managed the years from 1898 to 1946 under American rule. Lasting only less than fifty years, the American period left a strong imprint in the Philippine history and society. Behind the romantic nostalgia, the American period started with a broken promise to recognize Philippine independence and a savage war with cruelty unparalleled until that time. It saw the struggle for self-government and eventual independence accompanied by conflicts and political intrigues, not to mention a world war.
