This chapter returns to some salient points of comparison between scholarly writings on the history of Spanish colonization in the Philippines and similar scholarly projects produced in other parts of the world in which colonial or imperial rule was being contested. In comparison with scholarly efforts in British South Asia, in German-speaking Europe, and along Europe’s western and eastern peripheries, this scholarship of the Philippines is in some respects exceptional. However, we find that elsewhere, too, the Orientalist and anthropological projects of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries not only condoned forms of colonialism but could be used to challenge them. They were the languages through which peoples and nations could be articulated.
