About this title


To the growing of literature of Philippine history from the point of view of the Filipino by the Filipinos, this should be a welcome addition. Indeed, the Filipino Saga is what its title suggests as well as reflects, retelling of the Filipino glory, torturous and often frustrating quest for freedom, nationhood and sovreighnty without the biases and hidden agenda of a non-Filipino viewpoint. It is Philippine history with a comprehensive suit--before the Spanish conquest to the present, inherently exciting and instructive. Happily, the textbook written by Dr. Rosario M. Cortes, with the collaboration of Drs. Ricardo T. Jose and Celestina Boncan, is a product of decades of teaching and active research in Philippine history. The book follows a theme, incorporates the latest data from recent researches done by scholars, and presents new or reinterpretations of certain events in Philippine history. I take note of new topics and appraches, such as attention paid the the "rajahnates" of Cebu and Manila; "the century of the frontier" as a conceptual approach to study social change in the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries'; the consideration of the class origins of the Katipunan leadership; and the consequences of the "attack on Manila" in August 1896. -- Oscar L. Evangelista Professor of History (Retired) U.P. Diliman
