Well-illustrated juvenile non-fiction. From the jacket flap: “Thrust into the public eye after the assassination of her husband, Benigno, President Corazon Aquino has emerged as a bold leader in the Philippines. Cory, as she is affectionately known, had always been an ideal politician’s wife - entertaining supporters and campaigning endlessly. Then, while her husband was imprisoned during the Marcos dictatorship, she became his spokesperson, broadcasting his thoughts to the outside world. Since his death in 1983, she has developed into the country’s most charismatic force. In this timely look at an evolving democracy, we see how people power is helping her bring the country back on course while she faces staggering problems - threats of uprisings from both the Communists and the army, a bankrupt treasury, foreign debts, and widespread poverty. Against the backdrop of Philippine history, Beatrice Siegel explores both the actions of a woman whose courage ‘transcends fear’ and the plight of a nation in transition.”
