About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Hawes, Gary

From Library Journal:

A political economy approach to Philippine politics that sacrifices empirical richness to theoretical neatness. Hawes sees the Marcos martial law regime (1972-86) as an effort to resolve the internal contradictions of rival "segments" of the Philippine bourgeoisie that competed to dominate the state. But instead of using agro-exports to produce industrial development, Marcos crony capitalism degenerated into massive corruption and conspicuous consumption. Hawes uses fine case studies of the coconut, sugar, and fruit products industries to illustrate the larger themes. But his neo-Marxist approach yields a mechanistic understanding of Philippine politics lacking in nuance and detail. Steven I. Levine, Sch. of International Service, American Univ., Washington, D.C.
