Abstract

The peoples of Korea and the Philippines have suffered significant U.S. intervention in their affairs throughout the twentieth century: at the beginning when the U.S. government was engaged in a policy of colonization; at mid-century when the U.S. military interventions of the Second World War merged into those of the Cold War; in the 1960s and 1970s when U.S. Cold War policy led to the Vietnam war, and in the 1980s when the Cold War was coming to an end.
