More than a second book about the end of the Marcos dictatorship, A Country Not Even His Own by Steve Psinakis records the author's odyssey from the events that inspired hm to champion democracy in the Philippines to the subsequent US reaction: United States of America versus Steve Elias Psinakis. From Greece with an American electrical engineering degree, Mr. Psinakis found employment and met his wife to be, Presy Lopez, in Manila. As the Production Manager of Meralco stationed in Manila, employment inequities between Americans and Filipinos were soon to become evident. In 1972 human rights abuse would yet strike at the heart of his wife's family with the political imprisonment of her brother, Gery Lopez. Abroad in the United States, Mr. Psinakis helped to orchestrate the successful escape of his brother-in-law and took a leading role in exposing the abuses of the Marcos regime. The book title is quoted from a 1988 citation by President Cory Aquino to Mr. Psinakis in recognition of his steadfast commitment to restore democracy in the Philippines.
