About the book:  Armed by its first information revolution, Washington pacified the Philippines after 1898 with pervasive policing. In the sixty years since its independence, the U.S. continued to use the country as a key laboratory for counterinsurgency. But techniques bred overseas could not be contained at this remote periphery of American power. From World War I to the War on Terror, new security methods have migrated homeward to honeycomb American society with spies and surveillance.
