Filipinas Everywhere: Essays in Criticism and Cultural Studies from a Filipino Perspective by E. San Juan Jr. "seizes the crisis in neocolonial Philippines as a point of intervention. He foregrounds the facticity that Filipinos are once more confronted with the legacy of U.S. domination, legitimized today as 'civilizing' humanitarianism. He interrogates the use of postcolonial dogmas, semiotics, Kafka's allegory on torture, Said's use of Gramsci, and the postcolonial view of photography. He also diagnoses symptoms of nihilistic neoliberal ideology found in media discourses on diaspora, terrorism, and globalization.
