These chapters provide a snapshot of the history of the Philippines from 1850 to 1963 from the point of view of the Philippine communist movement. The papers trace the rise of Philippine communism as an offshoot of the economic development of the country, which began under the last half-century of Spanish colonial rule. It then narrates the changing composition of the communist movement as the Philippines embarks on a path of tremendous political revolution from Spanish, Revolutionary, American, Japanese colonial rule, then finally as a fledgling republic.
