Apr 12, Andrew Kahn rated it it was amazing. Excellent book with a definite eye to understanding Filipino history from a people's point of view that is decidedly anti-colonial and anti-imperial. Highly recommend this book for anyone interested in anti-imperialist struggles in general and the Philippines specifically.
Feb 26, Nico rated it it was amazing Shelves: philippine-lit , best-books. This is a chunky book to introduce the history of the Philippines. It is a well-written book that represents our history and struggles as a country. In this book, I've learned to appreciate many heroes and assess my beliefs about other heroes discussed in my elementary days. We are so rich in culture and history and certain textbooks cannot transcend our ancestors' legacy into the present.
I wish that people, mostly the youth, would read this book. Highly recommended! Feb 09, Jade added it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.

And this understanding can come about by a systematic and patriotic effort to synthesize the experience of the past in order to obtain a concrete vision of the future.
History, then, should serve the purpose of integrating seemingly isolated facts and events into a coherent historical process so that a view of the totality of social reality may be achieved.
Only then can facts be really understood and not be merely known; only then can this understanding of facts become an understanding of society; only then can history be perceived as a unified process. Only then can history have a goal. And when history has a goal, the past ceases to dominate the present and to hold back the future. Then history can be consciously made. Probably the best history book I have ever read in my entire life.
