The Origins of Metropolitan Manila
First published by New Day in 1998, Manuel Caoili’s book examines urbanization in the Philippines and situates the process in its historical and global context, taking into account the relations between former colonial, imperialist powers and the newly independent states and their long-term social, economic and political consequences. By studying the roots of Metropolitan Manila’s problems, it analyzes the origins and interrelation of various urban problems in order to propose feasible solutions.
