Nearly five million migrant workers from the Philippines are employed in over 190 countries and territories. They work as doctors and domestic helpers, engineers and entertainers, seamstresses and surveyors. It is through their collective labor that the Philippines has assumed a global presence.

For over five centuries the Philippines has been integrated into the world economy. Only recently, however, has the Philippines been a pro-active agent in the production of a global economy. Since the 1970s the Philippine state, in connection with myriad private institutions, has recruited, trained, marketed, and deployed a mobile work-force. Annually, approximately one million migrant workers travel to all corners of the world. The Philippines seeks to understand how the Philippines has become the world’s largest exporter of government-sponsored temporary contract labor and, in the process, has dramatically reshaped both the processes of globalization and also our understanding of globalization as concept.

Review:

'Now that memory studies have become mainstream in historical scholarship, there is a glaring need for this well organized and engaging introduction to the sophisticated theory and methods that undergird them. Tumblety has produced a work that is the ideal starting point for anyone interested in the burgeoning field of historical memory.' W. Fitzhugh Brundage, University of North Carolina, USA "Memory and History leaves this reader with the impression that work with sources of and about memory is charged with dilemmas of interpretation, ethics, scale and truth-and therein lies its strength. This primer does much to present the current state of the field and the role of oral sources in working with historical memory. It encourages students to make their own contributions to meaningful ongoing debates." Rosamund Johnston, New York University, USA "[This] book appropriately strives not to reify memory but to historicize it and to locate its complexities in historical processes." Sean Field, University of Cape Town, South Africa
