Discipline: History



This paper is an analysis of Saleeby’s discourse on the Moros or the Filipino Muslims. Through a critical and careful scrutiny of his book The Moro Problem this paper presents a closer reading of his unique multi-cultural outlook which is implicit, but seemingly hidden, behind his proposal on how colonial America was to deal with the Filipino-Muslims.
