Summary "The following pages have been written in the hope of conveying to those at home who may read them an idea of what the Filipinos have done with the self-government we granted them in 1916. The purpose of the book is to portray their ideals and ambitions, their trails and problems, their accomplishments and development, rather than to describe the achievements of our fellow-countrymen in the islands. The writer is convinced that the Filipinos are now ready for independence, that they have already set up the stable government required of them under the Jones Act as a prerequisite"--Preface.
