A History of the Philippines

BY

DAVID P. BARROWS, Ph. D.

Director of Education for the Philippine Islands; former Chief of the Bureau

of Non-Christian Tribes. “This book has been prepared at the suggestion of the educational authorities for pupils in the public high schools of the Philippines, as an introduction to the history of their country. Its preparation occupied about two years, while the author was busily engaged in other duties-much of it being written while he was traveling or exploring in different parts of the archipelago. No pretensions are made to an exhaustive character for the book. For the writer, as well as for the pupil, for whom it is intended, it is an introduction into the study of the history of Malaysia. Considerable difficulty has been experienced in securing the necessary historical sources, but it is believed that the principal ones have been read.”—(From the author's preface.)

Chapter 1—The Philippines as a subject for historical study.
Chapter 11—The peoples of the Philippines.
Chapter III–Europe and the Far East about 1400 A. D.

Philippine Life in Town and Country

BY

JAMES A. LE ROY

American Consul at Durango, Mexico. For two years connected with the United States Philippine Commission during the establish

ment of civil government in the Philippines.

"We believe this to be the best book we have read on the Philippines, published since American occupation.”-THE FILIPINO.

Mr. LeRoy says: “The need of the hour in the Philippines is for men of definite attainments, who have acquired know!erige by hard work, who will apply themselves to the immediate practical needs of the people.”

Written, not by a tourist, nor by a theorist, nor yet by in envoy of a political organization, but by a young man, energetic, practical, a clear thinker and writer—and an American all over.

“CRAM” NUMBER

T is intended, first, to extend to this newly acquired people the blessings of
law and social order. To protect them from rapacity, violence and anarchy.
To make them secure in their lives, limbs, and property, reputation and

civil privileges. To make them safe in the rights of conscience. In this
way they are to be trained up in a knowledge of our laws and institutions. They
are thus to serve an apprenticeship to liberty ; they are to be taugnt the lessons of
freedom ; and by degrees they are to be raised to the enjoyment and practice of
independence." (Mr. Mitchell of New York, Annals of Congress, 1803 ;
Debate on policy to be adopted toward the inhabitants of Louisiana, just purchased
from France.)

YIVE schools before political rights ; make citizens comprehend the duties

that the state of society imposes upon them ; teach them what are political
rights before you offer these for their enjoyment, and then all amelioration

will be made without causing a shock. Imitate nature, which, in
development of beings, acts by gradation, and gives time to every member to
arrive at perfection." (George Cuvier : France : 1769-1832.)
