Waltzing with a Dictator is the startling story of America's twenty-year partnership with the conjugal dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos and his wife, Imelda. Based on 12,000 pages of previously classified U.S. documents, Raymond Bonner's account contains never-before-told details of the incredible lifestyle of Imelda Marcos; of the imprisonment and assassination of Genigno S. Aquino; of the Marcos' crony capitalism that drained the country of between $5 and $10 Billion. In the most complete account ever published of the imposition of martial law in 1972, Mr. Bonner shows the extent of the U.S. involvement and explains that the Marcos government, not the Communists, was responsible for the bombings in Manila preceding the declaration. This book also deals at length with the question of the continuing presence of the U.S. military bases in the Philippines. Mr. Bonner reveals that even some American officials believe that the installations should be relocated. This book tells the often shocking, always enlightening inside story of the Washington-Marcos alliance.
