The War Against the Americans
Resil B. Mojares' The War Against the Americans: Resistance and Collaboration in Cebu 1899-1906 is the definitive account of the American occupation of Cebu. It brings together a large mass of original data not only on the battles but also the finances of the resistance, collaboration and factionalism among Cebuanos, brigandage, and the background and motives of the persons involved in the events. It goes beyond being a well-documented chronicle of the Filipino-American War as it was fought in one province; it carries the reader forward, beyond the war itself, to a reflection on the making of local society.
