Studies freedom in the Philippines following the sudden death of President Magsaysay and reviews their relationship with America.

"The book is a sketch of the development of self-government in the Philippines up to the time of the second world war, followed by a study of political, economic, and social problems of the Republic which came into being in 1946 and to its place in the modern world, almost a hundred pages being devoted to the career and presidency (1953-7) of Ramon Magsaysay. The book ends with a discussion f the future outlook for the Philippines.

The following documents are appended to the book: the Jones Act of 1916, the Tydings-McDuffie Act of 1934 and its amendments, the Philippine Constitution, and the Philippine Trade Agreement Revision Act of 1955.

The Author is intimately acquainted with his subject, and his book is an admirable combination f description and critical comment."– Ifor B. Powell
