Vicente Rafael, Professor of History, University of Washington, examines the emergence of the Philippine nation-state. How did its multi-lingual population and mixed race elites resist and accommodate the forces of imperial powers? The Philippines remains both central and peripheral to the globalized histories of Europe, North America and Northeast Asia.
