This book was designed with you in mind. It aims to give you a clear
sense of history by focusing on historical trends, trying to reduce the
large number of dates and names to memorize. The more recent the
history, the more important it is. So, much of the book focuses on the
last one hundred years. This is in the time of your parents and
grandparents, and affected your world today.
Democracy means rule of the people. History was put in high schools to make you a better decision maker, so you can participate intelligently in society. This book will help you understand the world you are entering. You will be able to make sense of world issues, to develop your own opinions. In addition, this book can expand your reading and vocabulary skills.
This is probably the last time you will study world history. It is not
offered in college. This book is written to provide you with enough
information so you can compare our national history with others.
Also, probably you, or some of your classmates will work abroad. And
now, with greater wealth, many of us can travel abroad for fun. So, it
longer good enough just to know your nation’s history, but to have some background of other countries’ as well.

Welcome to Asian Studies! We wrote and designed this book with you in mind. The new approach to this course emphasizes geography and culture, which will help you later in life. You are graduating into a borderless world, especially here in Southeast Asia. Many of the you will choose to work overseas, and will interact with different types of people from different nationalities. This course will help you understand other Asians and their nations.
By the time you finish reading this book, you will have acquired a better understanding of events that are happening today. By learning about other Asian nations, you will see the areas where the Philippines excels in, and the areas where it lags behind. As an informed citizen of the world, you will be able to make sense of and develop your own opinion about events. In addition, this book can expand your daily reading, listening, and vocabulary skills.
This may be the last time you will study Asia, because it is not a subject usually offered in college, so, do not take Asian Studies for granted
