   schema:description "Searching for financial records to help trace billions of dollars in missing funds, discovered a cache of cardboard boxes in a neglected corner of the Malacanang compound. Inside they found a piece of history - thousands of palace papers, including the diary, abandoned in the rush to pack the Marcoses' gems, jewels, and other valuables for life in Hawaiian exile. Los Angeles Times correspondent William C. Rempel, the first person outside the Aquino government with access."@en ;
   schema:description "To the historical papers, transforms the diary into a compelling story of a complex man, haunted by superstition and fears of illness and assassination, who believed he had personal conversations with God and possessed extrasensory powers; a deceiver who lied to his allies, to his nation, his wife, and, at times, even to his own diary; a leader who practiced politics with the principles of Machiavelli and the Red-baiting smears of Joe McCarthy; and, finally, a dictator."@en ;

Ultimately, the Marcos diary would provide history with a remarkable inside view of a rarely witnessed event: the advent of a dictator. The previously undisclosed diary fell into the hands of Marcos's rivals several months after his regime had collapsed in 1986. Investigators for the new government of President Gorazon Aquino,"@en ;
