Having recently had a conversation with a well-educated young Filipino from Leyte who sincerely and honestly shared his opinion that the new crack down on crime by Bongbong Marcos was welcomed in his community in spite of the failure of same by Duterte before him, the references to Imelda in "Dictator Chic" are intriguing, and I look forward to reading the book! Thanks for this!

Loved the theme and the description of the two books on the theme. What with ascendancy of Trump, 'dictator chic' takes on a new meaning and relevance. Thanks for searching out these interesting books!
