The Isles of Fear

-Katherine Mayo

  • (2)


In the 1920s, as the Philippines intensified their nationalist atempts at independence from the U.S. empire, Katherine Mayo published The Isles of Fear. The book used the notion of race as proof why independence must not be granted to the population. Under the guise of a "public health report," the book relied on earlier scientific publications to stress the contagions and maladies and, thus, the imminent threat to the Anglo-Saxon world should the colony be granted autonomy.
