    The early political careers of Manuel L. Quezon and Sergio OsmeƱa are brought to light in the context of the changing colonial society by Michael Cullinane in Ilustrado Politics: Filipino Elite Responses to American Rule, 1898-1908. Through years of research work, Cullinane shows how provincial politicos rose to national leadership in the midst of influential American officials and Manila-based ilustrados as they took advantage of the possibilities presented by the new colonial order.

He completed his doctoral degree at the University of Michigan , and has been conducting research and publishing on Philippine history since the early 1970s. He has taught history and political science at the University of San Carlos in Cebu City and at De La Salle University in Manila.
