William Henry Scott is a Filipino nationalist with a white skin. The 17 essays in this new collection - CRACKS IN THE PARCHMENT CURTAIN - give clear proof of this statement. For here we glimpse unknown facets of Filipino life glinting through the shadows of three centuries of Spanis rule and a turn-of-the century struggle against a new night of foreign aggression. Scott's essays make a Filipino proud to be a Filipino. His patient scholarship among musty books and documents in libraries and archives here and aborad, his travels in the provinces to dig out decaying parish records, and his friendship and interviews with surviving historical resources--all provide intimate glimpses of a virile people yearning for dignity and freedom in the face of inexorable odds.
