Moral Politics in the Philippines
Moral Politics in the Philippines: Inequality, Democracy and the Urban Poor by Wataru Kusaka sheds light on the polarized poltical landscape of the Philippines. Covering the period from 1986 to 2010, it looks into the relationship between the middle-class and the urban poor and explains how they have shaped political developments in the country. With each group considering the other as a threat to democracy, the prevailing antagonism makes it difficult to overcome the structures of inequality.
