And wonderful insight into how America helped shape the Philippines,
This review is from: The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt and the Golden Age of Journalism (Paperback)
As with Team of Rivals (the Lincoln story) and No Ordinary Time (FDR and Eleanor) DKG once again sheds light on great human beings having a profound impact on their world. It confirms many of the worst things you suspected about the conduct of affairs but fills you with optimism and hope in witnessing what these people achieved, and what surely can be achieved in their wake. A remarkable insight too into the period in the first half of the 20th Century when US 'imperialism' had such a benign and positive effect on the formation of the Philippine nation.
