Making Mindanao: Cotabato and Davao in the Formation of the Philippine Nation-State

Focuses on how local power was determined by state formation and how the state’s ability to establish its authority was mediated by mutual accommodation between strong men who controlled this frontier zone. Compares Cotabato and Davao to show the process of state formation and the shaping of local power from the American period (1900–1941) to the eve of the declaration of martial law by Ferdinand Marcos (1946–1972).
