The Modern Principalia: The Historical Evolution of the Philippine Ruling Oligarchy. The basis of this study of the roots and powers of the ruling oligarchic elite which dominates much of the political, economic and social structure of the Philippines is research done for a 1965 Ph.D. While this information directly concerns the 1946-63 period, the author is confident that its 2005 publication is fully justified by the country's continuing pattern of exploitative, oligarchical power in key aspects of the country's life. With references, bibliography, black-and-white photographs and index.
