2017 Literary

Accidents of Composition These revelatory poems travel through marginal histories and colonial encounters with an abundance of courage, curiosity, clairvoyance and humanity. Bobis is a lyrical shapeshifter; her dramatic luminosity and narrative flourishes inhabit other worlds.—Michelle Cahill After four novels, award-winning writer Merlinda Bobis returns to poetry. Her latest novel Locust Girl, A Lovesong received the 2016 Christina Stead Prize for Fiction and the Juan C. Laya Philippine National Book Award.

Pag Mabilis Na Umalis Baka Di Naman Talaga Dumating Sa ikatlong koleksyon ng maikling kwento ni Rolando B. Tolentino, ang mga iglap ay hitik sa kwento ng paglisan, pagdating, di pagbalik, pag-aantay, paglagi—pero parating puno ng pagtatagpo. Ang eksena ng tagpuan ay enkapsuladong sandali at sityo ng mga realidad, fantasya, angas, labis at kulang sa historikal, panlipunan, sarili, kapwa, kabalintunaan, paradox, pagnanasa, at pagdanas. Si Rolando B. Tolentino ay fellow at direktor ng UP Institute of Creative Writing. Nagsusulat siya ng kwento at sanaysay.



Linara nga mga Pulong Set against this backdrop, Linara nga mga Pulong (Woven Words), a collection of about a hundred poems in Waray and their translations into English, signifies a defiance of historical and geopolitical marginalization of regional languages in the Philippines. It affirms the vitality of a people’s literary sensibility and a poetic tradition, which, in not a few ways, deviates from the modernist visions of the hegemonic strands of Philippine literature. Jose Duke S. Bagulaya is a native of Tacloban City and a former fellow of the UP National Writers Workshop. He holds a Bachelor of Laws, a BA in Communication Arts, and an MA in Comparative Literature.

Southern Stories and Strays This collection of fiction and nonfiction pieces is peopled by women who live in or come from Mindanao, that “faraway” place in the Philippine South known for its political wars and religious strife. But this book is not about that. These stories are about those middle spaces where there will always be more than one thing, all at once: logic and love, truth and imagination, tradition and transitions, presence and loss, madness and choices, grief and life. Maria Elena L. Paulma was born in Butuan City and has degrees in creative writing and comparative literature from the University of the Philippines.

Tilt Me and I Bend With a “voice the weight of an island,” Desire calls us into her heady tropical surreal. An anthropomorphic deity permeates the sequence with her presence: her creation, her lingering trauma, her irresistible beauty, her wild pain. On the mouths of men, ADORE. And we must put this collection of poems on a pedestal, to be watchers of the fleeting fires, the sparks, the drama, and the true. For whatever is here is you and me: the lost, meandering against velvet folds of the dream that once we burned more than we should, and burned well.—Nerisa del Carmen Guevara Ned Parfan is an instructor at the University of Santo Tomas and a Resident Fellow of the UST Center for Creative Writing and Literary Studies.



Sinagnayan Labaw Donggon is tasked by his wife, Matan-ayon, to defeat Sinagnayan and bring her sister Pinailog sa Pinggan home with him. Will he succeed despite the many characters and challenges that he’ll meet along the way? Federico “Tuohan” Caballero, the chanter, comes from a long family line of epic chanters. Alicia P. Magos is Professor Emeritus of UP Visayas Anna Razel Limoso Ramirez is project coordinator for the publication of the ten epics of Panay.

Sapantaha Tinutukoy ng “sapantaha” ang anumang hula, akala, o hinala. Kapag inilangkap sa sining ng pagkukuwento, ang ibinubunga’y pagsasakatawan din ng bisyon ng nakaraan, kasalukuyan, at hinaharap, na hindi kinakailangang nakasalansan sa nakasanayan. Tinipon ng mga editor ang mga kontemporaneong kuwento sa Sapantaha sa hangaring hagipin ang kasalukuyang imahinasyon ng mga Pilipino. Maaaring tingnan ang koleksiyon bilang tinipong mga mito, mga piniga’t pinarikit na mga karanasang tumutugis sa nakasanayang pagpapatotoo at pagkatotoo. Si Luna Sicat Cleto ay nagtuturo ng malikhaing pagsulat at panitikan sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas Diliman. Si Rolando B. Tolentino ay fakulti ng University of the Philippines Film Institute at dating dekano ng UP College of Mass Communication. Tinalunay Tinalunay is what Waray students and scholars have been wishing for. This anthology will make Leyte-Samar readers proud of their enduring literary artistry: from the “lost” epics of the early inhabitants of Leyte-Samar to the lyrics and narratives of contemporary Waray writers, from the puplonganon and karantahon of the folk to the traditional poems of the Sanghiran writers, and from the songs of the revolutionary movement to the visual poetry and formal experimentation of today’s young writers. This will certainly be the go-to source for Waray writing and poetics.—Nino Soria de Veyra Merlie M. Alunan was faculty of UPV Tacloban College where she initiated creative writing workshops to encourage the young to write in the native language.


Cadena de Amor


Marra PL. Lanot’s poetry combines lighthearted wit, compassion, and wisdom. This is what poets with a genuine respect for words and worlds do. Writing in three different languages—English, Tagalog, and Spanish—she tackles even the littlest of things like when she celebrates “Buko Pie,” her cat, or declares in her own unique way that she is a woman not of one country but of the world. In poignant images, she narrates how life can be under martial law in “Batas Militar.” There are no absolute answers, but Cadena de Amor, her latest poetry collection, weaves memories of her lives and loves and speaks to our hearts, minds, and spirit. Read, reflect, and be delighted.—Lilia Quindoza Santiago Marra PL. Lanot is a poet, essayist, and freelance journalist and served as literary editor of Mirror Weekly and Philippines Graphic magazines.

Black Arcadia “Black Arcadia presents us with a landscape that is barren and inhospitable, but at the same time wild and lush. These beautifully dark poems move like a sidewinder across the landscape, tangle in the undergrowth, and deliver us into something feral and exhilarating.”—Kristy Bowen Born in September 1980 in Kidapawan, Cotabato, Kristine Ong Muslim is the author of eight books of fiction and poetry. Her individual stories and poems have received awards and distinctions.

Balanakon Imagine a breathtaking fight between two brave men by the river mouth—Sarandihon who guards the Bangga-an gibwangan (river mouth) and Balanakon who is intent on passing through that river route. The intruder, Balanakon, wants to snatch away the beauteous Matan-ayon from Labaw Donggon. From the land-fight, both fighters armed with long-bladed knives soar to the sky, engaging in an aerial display of prowess. But Balanakon’s eyes are drawn toward the long-haired maiden, Kamaging, whom he spies among the fair maidens witnessing the fight; he becomes smitten with her. He decides to woo Kamaging by asking her for a quid (betel nut preparation). Who will win the fight once Balanakon has fallen in love and gotten distracted? Alicia P. Magos is Professor Emeritus of UP Visayas.



100 Love Letters Press: 100 Love Letters collects love letters from women across the Asia-Pacific region. Letters of longing crafted with perfect heat. Affectionate illustrations shaped by hand. Playing cards with bite. Savor each letter slowly. Or consume as many as you can. Francesca Rendle-Short is a novelist, essayist, poet, and memoirist. Laurel Flores Fantauzzo teaches at Yale-NUS College.

Then, Beast: Poems Shane Carreon’s level gaze unflinchingly confronts her world with grace. In these prose-poems, the subtle, matter-of-fact candor of her voice—refusing to yield to marginalization, elegantly expunged of any bid for sympathy—deepens into a breathtaking awareness of “Our selves, drifting back to all the places we’ve been.”— Rowena Tiempo Torrevillas Shane Carreon is a recipient of the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature for her poetry and the Nick Joaquin Literary Award for her fiction. Her work has been chosen by the State University of New York in Binghamton for the AWP Intro Journal Awards for Poetry. This is her second poetry collection after travelbook (UP Press). How to Pacify a Distraught Infant Anna Felicia C. Sanchez has written the kind of book that will provoke reams of scholarly papers on gender identity and marital politics—in other words, it’s clearly important and insightful, the well-crafted product of a mature sensibility that has managed to capture her generation’s domestic tribulations. But the best reason to read it is to welcome the long-overdue emergence of a remarkable literary talent who can write about pain—about itinerant and impermanent affections—with uncommon poignancy.—José Y. Dalisay Jr. Anna Felicia C. Sanchez finished her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the Department of English and Comparative Literature of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, where she teaches literature and creative writing.




Through a glass, darkly This book compiles prose works (other than short stories) of National Artist Francisco Arcellana, comprising of columns written just after the Pacific War, introductions to books of fellow writers, commencement speeches, interviews with students, and papers delivered on the sidelines of a workshop, among others. It presents another side of the writer, whose centennial was celebrated in 2016.

Of Tyrants and Martyrs Of Tyrants and Martyrs is an account of Manuel Lahoz’s experiences during Martial Law. In this book, he narrates his encounters with unsung heroes who dedicated their lives to uphold human rights even amidst dark times. The book tells stories of ordinary people such as Fr. Zacarias Agatep, Deacon Santiago Arce, Ama Macli-ing Dulag, Puri Pedro, Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, and Bobby dela Paz who took extraordinary tasks for the welfare of others. More than a political memoir, the book aims to inspire the younger generation not to forget the men and women who lost their lives in their fight against tyranny. Manuel Lahoz is a former priest who is a human rights advocate.

Awareness of Light Naomi “Shoko” Matsumoto’s book, Awareness of Light: Handbook and Archives of Technical Theater in the Philippines, is an important addition to the documented genre of lighting design. It brings a uniquely Asian, specifically Japanese, viewpoint and attitude to the discipline of lighting design, including a section on Ikebana and how it relates to lighting design.—Michael F. Ramsaur, Professor, Stanford University Naomi “Shoko” Matsumoto studied Performing Arts at the Tama Art School in Tama Art University, Japan, and is an active international lighting designer who has designed for more than 500 theatre performances, musicals, operas, and dance productions all over the world.



Suri Ang salitang “sori” (matandang baybay ng salitang “suri” sa Vocabulario de la lengua Tagala nina Noceda at Sanlucar) ay tumutukoy sa espesipikong paraan ng manghahabi sa pagtiyak na may pare-parehong nipis/gaspang ang mga hiblang hahabihin upang maging tela.

Bright Sign, Bright Age The winning essays of a UP Press-sponsored Critical Essay Writing Contest in [both] the English and Filipino divisions attend to varying aspects of Philippine Studies, and yet what seems to unify them is the recognition of dissonance and paradox in the fundamental ways everyday social meanings are negotiated, expressed, interpreted, and lived by most Filipinos, caught as they are between the painful vicissitudes and transitions of their restively transforming histories.—From the Introduction, J. Neil C. Garcia, editor Editor J. Neil C. Garcia teaches creative writing and comparative literature at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, where he serves as Director of the university press and a fellow for poetry at the Institute of Creative Writing.


Vocal Repertoire of the Ibaloi of Kabayan The Ibaloi have a rich patrimony of vocal expressions, from ritualistic forms of communication and narratives to allegorical songs and witty repartees. These embody the depth and fullness of the Ibaloi persona in their textual contents, most especially those that were conveyed extemporaneously and have been retained in the memory of the community of the elders. This study offers a glimpse of the entire Ibaloi culture, which reflects a much wider cultivation and history of their colorful and rich civilization. Dr. Ramón Pagayon Santos is a university professor emeritus at the UP College of Music and was named National Artist for Music in 2014.



An Orosipon kan Bikolnon If the monologic force of narration produces a nation, orosipon, an old Bikol word for story, interrupts this production by telling a different story or different stories. Coming from the root word osip which approximates “tell,� orosipon points to more than one person involved in the act of telling, which attributes the act of telling proper to no one in particular. Orosipon suggests a multiplicity and fluidity prohibited by the homogenizing structuring of narration and community. Raniela Barbaza is an associate professor at the Department of Filipino and Philippine Literature, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City.

Halakhak Halakhak is an examination of how humor is deployed in Philippine popular cultural forms, a response to the paucity of studies in which Filipino humor is analyzed. In attempting to provide a definition of Filipino national humor, it examines popular cultural forms as repositories of different aspects of Filipino humor, which mine what is laughable in Philippine life, and study why this laughter is so robust and persistent, oftentimes amid truly tragic and pathetic experiences. Dr. Maria Rhodora G. Ancheta is professor at the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of the Philippines at Diliman.

SiningSaysay SiningSaysay tells the story of the Filipino nation through twenty-nine magnificent, large-scale paintings, each measuring twelve feet wide and six feet high. The paintings were created by a select group of twenty-seven esteemed UP alumni artists who captured in their creative minds the various significant eras in Philippine history and committed in visual forms the events and protagonists of these periods to narrate to us through pictures our story as a people. SiningSaysay is a collaborative project of the University of the Philippines (UP), the UP Alumni Association (UPAA), and the Araneta Center Inc.



3 Baybayin Studies The general approach of this invisible faculty contrasts greatly with the amateurish interpretations tinged with superstitions that have plagued baybáyin studies in the course of the twentieth century, and may have contributed to the general disregard for this field among the majority of Filipino intellectuals. Now that the baybáyin has been recognized as one of the deep components of the filipino identity, it is a good thing that serious scholars should have endeavored to proceed to a scientifically and historically correct presentation of what should be known about it. —Jean-Paul Potet (from the Foreword) Ramon Guillermo teaches Philippine Studies at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, Quezon City.

Scripted by Men This is an analytical study of crucial documents that shed light on the last few months of Andres Bonifacio’s life in the province of Cavite. On the basis of its findings, the study calls for a drastic revision of the historiography of those events dealing with the life of this national hero and the fate of the Philippine Revolution of 1896–97.

Green Entanglements Green Entanglements is a comparative, multisited ethnography of the on-the-ground dynamics of nature conservation projects working in cooperation with or co-optation of indigenous peoples in the Philippines and Indonesia. It is based on fieldwork conducted from 2003 to 2005, alternating between the Kalanguya of Tawangan in the Philippine province of Benguet, the Ngaju Dayak of Baun Bango in the province of Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, and the agents of conservation working with each community.—From the Preface Padmapani L. Perez holds a bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences from the University of the Philippines Baguio and doctorate in Anthropology from Leiden University.

Traditional Medicine in the Colonial Philippines From the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, Spanish missionaries collected, studied, and made records of Philippine medicinal plants and herbs that Filipino traditional medical practitioners or herbolarios had been prescribing since the precolonial period. Because the herbolarios left no writings about their practices, the missionaries’ works are our primary sources for studying Filipino traditional medicine. Based on these works, Traditional Medicine in the Colonial Philippines, 16th to the 19th Century by Ma. Mercedes G. Planta gives us an intimate and dense portrait of a defined medical tradition, and so, documents an important component of ways of life and epistemologies that Filipinos can recuperate and benefit from. Ma. Mercedes G. Planta is a faculty member of the Department of History, University of the Philippines Diliman. The Myth of the Barangay The Myth of the Barangay and Other Silenced Histories provides important incisive analyses of several primary documents that point to a rich and largely dismissed narrative of early written Philippine history. Damon Woods has done tremendous and painstaking work to seek out hidden Filipino transcripts found among Spanish documents scattered all over the world. In doing so, his work calls for an enriched, critical, and continuing dialogue on the bayan and its relationship to Filipinos in the Philippines as well as the growing Filipino diaspora.—Lily Ann B. Villaraza Chair, Philippine Studies Department City College of San Francisco

Typewriter Altar Typewriter Altar is a story of the power of recollection, remembrance, and redemption. It begins with the narrator’s recurring dream. Books with wordless pages are strewn everywhere in an empty, old house wherein a mood of abandonment reigns. In the dream, Laya thinks she can hear her parents’ voices, but silence would follow as soon as she attempts to trace these sounds. Always, she would wake up, and the emptiness of that house and those pages seem accusatory. In the work, memory bleeds into the then and the now, ushering the reader into a ringside glimpse of an artist’s life. Luna Sicat Cleto teaches at the UP Department of Filipino and Philippine Literature. Selected Poems This is Cirilo F. Bautista’s twelfth book of poems, selected by the poet himself from his remarkable body of past work. “(Bautista’s) writings have done much to enhance the framework of Philippine nationalism beyond the narrow bounds of the traditional concepts of what is Filipino and have brought in a global inclusiveness that has set the Philippines as a vibrant member among the other nations of the world.” —Edith L. Tiempo National Artist for Literature Cirilo F. Bautista was declared declared National Artist for Literature in 2014

Of That Other Country We Now Speak Written over the last two decades, these stories are thematically and stylistically diverse ranging from the exuberant title story to the “minimalist” “The Vet.” Here we find the gritty realism of crime fiction as well as the enchantment of myth. Here is fiction sensual and sophisticated, rich and robust. Here is fiction worthy of its calling. Charlson Ong has published three collections of short fiction as well as three novels. He has won the National Book Award for both his short fiction and his novels.


Bamboo Bed


Bamboo Bed chronicles McCarty’s life in the immediate preMarcos and Martial Law eras as he moved in and out of the country’s jails—at one point sharing the same prison cell as the historian William Henry Scott—while circulating among an impressive circle of Manila’s gangsters, artists, ex-rebels, bohemians, drug addicts, politicians, and assorted cognoscenti. Bamboo Bed is … a rare document by a postcolonial American who has moved between the centers and margins of power. In this account of the tempestuous antecedents of late twentieth-century Manila, Mac gives us no less than a visceral map of the modern Philippines that is at once hallucinatory and prophetic. —Vicente L. Rafael, Univ. of Washington, Seattle Weldon “Mac” McCarty is a musician and author, and presently lives and writes in Quezon City.

Bohemian Rhapsody in Two Places and Other Essays I look at the world, but I don’t always understand it. Many times, it is in writing about what I see that I understand, that I make sense of things. These essays are attempts to understand—it’s in the etymology of the word “essay,” after all, the idea of attempting, of sketching out stories and trying to unspool their significance. They are attempts and, almost always, provisional. They are about, among other things, food, family, books, music, and places. They’re about cities in the Philippines and outside, written sporadically and spanning many years, from the mid-1990s to the present. —from “Looking at the World: An Introduction” Trixie Alano Reguyal has worked as a teacher, entrepreneur, writer, and editor. She currently blogs at



Snail Fever This book is a collection of poems selected by the author from the various works he wrote from about 1997 to 2016. The poems deal with the mystery and wonder of Nature, of the human mind and heart. They also deal with history from a fresh perspective. The poems that denounce the exploitation of the weak by those who usurp power have their origins in the author’s own experience of poverty and oppression. There are at least two love poems here, as well as the sonnet that was favorably reviewed by National Artist Edith L. Tiempo in her book, Six Poetry Formats and the Transforming Image. Francis C. Macansantos is a five-time Palanca awardee for Poetry in English. This book is his fourth collection of poems. Hasang Ayon kay Gerardo Z. Torres, “pinag-uugnay ang mga kuwento sa koleksiyong ito ng tema ng kasawian at kawalan na siyang bunga ng pag-ibig at pagnanasa. Malinaw ang mensahe ni John Iremil E. Teodoro sa kaniyang katha: hindi kailanman maaaring maangkin nang lubusan ang minamahal. Ito ang trahedya ng bawat nagmamahal, anuman ang kaniyang kasarian. Kung si Dickinson ang ‘Reyna ng Kalbaryo,’ si Teodoro ang kaniyang pinakamasugid na tagasunod.” Ipinanganak at lumaki si John Iremil E. Teodoro sa San Jose de Buenavista, Antique. Nagawaran na ng Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature ang kaniyang mga maikling kuwento, dula, at sanaysay. Nanalo ang kalipunan ng maikling sanaysay niya na Pagmumuni-muni at Pagtatalak ng Sirenang Nagpapanggap na Prinsesa ng National Book Award para sa Creative Nonfiction noong 2008. Pagkahaba-Haba Man ng Prusisyon Ayon kay Jericho Natividad, “ang aklat ay isang lawas ng mga personal na pagtatapat ng isang kaluluwang nagsusumikap at nagpupumiglas kilanlin ang kaniyang sarili batay na rin sa mga karanasang humahamon sa kaniya. Sa pamamagitan ng literatura, nakikipagdiyalogo ang may-akda sa kaniyang pananampalataya, nagtatanong, nagpoprotesta, sinusubukang iugnay rito ang mga katanungan ng kaniyang buhay. Sa pagbasa nito, tayo man ay makapagmumuni, mapapaisip, mapapangiti, maluluha, at muling makaaalaala sa halaga ng ating pagkatao.” Si Louie Jon A. Sánchez ay nagtuturo ng panitikan, pagsulat, at kulturang popular sa Department of English, Ateneo de Manila University.



Fault Setting “Here’s to homecoming, my friends,” Joel Toledo writes in his magnificent new book, Fault Setting. “Cheers to resistances.” Each poem in this collection is indeed a form of homecoming and an essay in resistance, a map of the heart that will guide readers into new worlds and ways of being. He is a poet who believes that “Sorrow can be alleviated.” And this book is proof of that.—Christopher Merrill Joel M. Toledo holds a Masters degree in English Studies (Poetry) from the University of the Philippines Diliman, where he likewise finished two undergraduate degrees (Journalism and Creative Writing). He has previously authored three collections of poetry—Chiaroscuro, The Long Lost Startle, and Ruins and Reconstructions. Haiyan and Other Plays This anthology of plays illustrates Taleon-Sonza’s response to events and issues facing the Philippines. Written in a span of over a decade, the book attests to her dedication as a cultural advocate for the Philippines while residing in the United States. This collection is a result of her unceasing affinity to the homeland, yielding reflections that raise compelling questions rather than easy answers. Central to the theme is the question of how a people manage to survive in the midst of harsh and cruel socioeconomic conditions. Jorshinelle Taleon-Sonza has won several awards from the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature and an award in the script category of the Philippine Centennial Literary Contest. Selda Dos Minsan, dumarating sa buhay ng tao ang pagsubok na susukat sa kaniyang katatagan. Ang aklat na ito ay isang pagsisiwalat ng isang manunulat tungkol sa kanyang karanasan sa loob ng ilang buwang pagkakabilanggo sa Selda Dos ng Manila City Jail. Sa hangaring makalaya sa maling paratang napilitan siyang harapin ang mga pangyayaring puno ng karahasan at panganib. Ang masadlak sa kulungang walang rehas, ayon sa may-akda, ay isang bangungot. Ipinanganak ang may-akdang si Bobby V. Villagracia sa Labo, Camarines Norte noong ika-5 ng Agosto 1958. Nagsusulat siya para sa komiks, pocketbook, at mga magasin ng maikling kuwento at nobela, lathalain, tula, at ilang aklat sa malikhaing pagsulat.



Banayad Ayon kay Luna Sicat Cleto, ang tinig ng makatang babae sa kontemporaryong panahon ay “tinig” ng katawan at kaluluwang matagal nang ikinulong sa loob ng garapon, ngunit ngayo’y nakapailanglang na, dahil kinilala na rin ang larangan ng personal bilang larang na politikal, dahil kinilala na rin ang ambag ng mga may-, kasam-, sa bahay, upang maakda ang talam- at akdang buhay. Hindi na mga multo sa panitikan sa Pilipinas ang mga babaeng makata. Isa na sa makatang ito si Rowena Festin. Si Rowena P. Festin ay editor, tagasalin, makata, kuwentista, guro, at mananaliksik. Ang kanyang mga tula at maikling kuwento ay nagkamit ng mga pagkilala sa Palanca Awards, Gawad Galian, at Gantimpalang Ani.

The Axolotl Colony The Axolotl Colony gathers together the stories of Jaime An Lim. His characters are faced with fear and dread for the future but hurtle along in An Lim’s masterful control of pace and plot. Paralyzed by separation, Tomas, in the title story, is a study in quiet desperation. Fidela Magsilang, in the story bearing her name, is literally liberated from her cold feet by a chase through a woodland scene. In “The Homing Mandarin,” An Lim chronicles the epic travails of a Chinese family in the Philippines with gentle humor and sad irony. An Lim sees the humanity in his characters’ fears at the same time as he admires and admonishes them. Fictionist Jaime An Lim is co-founder of the Mindanao Writers Group and the Iligan National Writers Workshop and has won many awards for his fiction. Selected Stories In the author’s introduction to the book, he writes, “these twelve short stories are memorable to me because they are, in a sense, so much a part of my personal experience. Writers write from their lives—this is axiomatic, not so much because their lives are ignited by adventure and romance. What they do is embroider, enlarge what is fairly trivial and common into something bright—even fanciful—with the magic of words.” National Artist Francisco “Frankie” Sionil Jose is a fictionist, essayist, and journalist who, throughout his seventy-year-long career as a writer, has espoused social justice, moral order, and change to better the lives of average Filipino families. He is also a publisher, lecturer on cultural issues, and the founder of the Philippine chapter of the international organization PEN.

Muling nangahas ang mga kontemporaneong kuwentistang Filipino. Winner o loser, walang in-between sa mga kuwento. Ginagalugad ang samu’t saring loob at labas ng ating uri, kasarian, sexualidad, henerasyon, relihiyon, etnisidad, lahi, pagkamamamayan, at pagkabansa. Narito ang mga kuwentong bumibitaw upang maging matatag ang ating paninindigan, naghihinagpis upang makilala ang tagumpay, nalulungkot upang mangarap. Namayani man ang dalawang polaridad ng ating indibiduwal at kolektibong danas, sa huli, matatagpuan natin ang ating mga sarili na nilalampasan ang mga luwalhati at pighati ng ating panahon.

Performing Catholicism This book reflects on the relationship between religion and theater. In particular, it looks at the relationship of Catholicism and performance or the embodied world of theater in opposition to the written text. In investigating this relationship, two inquiries are identified. First, it is proposed that performance may be looked at as an analogy for the understanding of Catholicism. Second, the link between Catholicism and performance is ontological. In other words, this book is an inquiry on Catholicism “as” a performance and an assertion that it “is” a performance.

Music in the Zarzuelas of Severino Reyes (“Lola Basyang”) Severino Reyes (1861–1942), writer and dramatist, wrote the libretto to a total of twenty zarzuelas in which he worked closely with composers ranging from Fulgencio Tolentino (1870–1940) to Antonio Molina (1894–1980). Unfortunately, only eleven of these works have extant music today. Nevertheless, they present a good cross section of musical theory and practice in the Philippines early in the twentieth century.The author also includes reproductions of original zarzuela compositions as found in the appendix, and recommends their possible revival today even as individual compositions. Helen Samson-Lauterwald obtained her Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) from the University of Cologne in Germany.



Myth and Writing As the title piece announces, mythology and writing are intimately intertwined things, so much so that the former is really the loftiest that the latter can ever wish to become. In other words, all fiction finally aspires to turn into myth, for myth is nothing if not narration wielding powerful and transfigurative magic over the communal psyche that invents it, providing not so much explanations as experiences of its innermost depths, its uppermost visions, its intuition of the transcendental, without which it would be quite impossible for any of us to grieve, to love, and be fully a person in this world. J. Neil C. Garcia teaches creative writing and comparative literature in the University of the Philippines, Diliman, where he serves as a fellow for poetry in the Institute of Creative Writing. The End of National Cinema Broad-ranging and empirically grounded, Patrick F. Campos’s The End of National Cinema maps the longstanding debates and new developments in Philippine cinema while illuminating the persistent but irresoluble claims made by—and on—filmmaking in the Philippines, claims that are revealing of the wider intellectual and political stakes that have to do with what it is like to live (and die) in the Philippines and what it takes to remake a society already in the throes of change.—Caroline S. Hau Patrick F. Campos is an independent critic and an Assistant Professor at the Film Institute of the University of the Philippines.

Divide by Two The Philippine media are as divided, and the division as masked. Mostly unremarked is the distinction between the dominant media (often mistakenly labeled the mainstream) and the alternative. But equally unnoticed is the segmentation within the dominant or corporate media themselves in terms of the audiences they address, which they separate into, on the one hand, the elite and middle class audience, and on the other, the mass or D and E audience. The division is evident across all the news media. Luis V. Teodoro is a retired journalism professor of the University of the Philippines (UP) College of Mass Communication (UP-CMC) where he was dean for two terms (1994–1997; 1997–2000).

Migrations and Mediations According to Dr. Raul Pertierra, the book deals with the works of Southeast Asians in Australia and their attempts to translate their experiences into the broader Australian worldview. Pertierra says, “It is important to know how Australia is opening itself to the variegated experiences of its migrant writers. It is also important for Filipinos to look beyond their American lenses and realize that their national and regional compatriots are engaging in new literary terrains.” Jose Wendell P.

Himlayan, Pantiyon, Kampo Santo, Sementeryo (Exploring Philippine Cemeteries)

Metroimperial Intimacies Author Victor Román Mendoza combines historical, literary, and archival analysis with queer-of-color critique to show how U.S. imperial incursions into the Philippines enabled the growth of unprecedented social and sexual intimacies between native Philippine and U.S. subjects. The real and imagined intimacies—whether expressed through friendship, love, or eroticism—threatened U.S. gender and sexuality norms. Mendoza is Associate Professor of Women’s Studies and English, with appointments in the Department of American Culture, the Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies Program, and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies.


Social Sciences

This book contains five articles that looks into how different individuals are treated at death. The authors explore representations of non-adults, ethnicity, patriots, and boy scouts in various cemeteries in Manila and neighboring provinces during the different colonial periods in Philippine History. The book advocates that we should take a second look at cemeteries not just as places for the dead but as active heritage sites where the living immortalize the dead through burial adornments. Mausoleums and gravestones also expose individual and collective histories of the deceased. Editor Grace Barretto-Tesoro ( ph) is an Associate Professor at the University of the Philippines-Archaeological Studies Program.

The Balance Concept in Nursing This book attempts to explain the nature of balance through five universal elements that support the survival of human beings: adaptation, equilibrium, homeostasis, needs, and health. Built on a theoretical framework with underpinnings from various social, physical, and psychological sciences, this book advocates a novel health-illness continuum using the concept of balance as a multidisciplinary lens. What makes this book unique is its development of the Balance Health Nursing Model framework as basis for nursing assessment and practice. Daisy Magalit Rodriguez obtained a Diploma in Nursing from the University of the Philippines—Philippine General Hospital School of Nursing, and a Bachelor of Nursing and a Master in Nursing majoring in Nursing Administration from the University of the Philippines.

A Wanderer in the Night of the World NVM Gonzalez recalls 1934 in Calapan, Mindoro: “I was out of school, too strapped to afford university tuition … Was it in relief or from sheer optimism that I took to composing poems? Whatever the reason, no one could tell me what a poem could look like or how it should be …. one day, a ferry boat came with my copy of Poetry: A Magazine of Verse [January 1934]—perhaps the first to ever reach Calapan. In fact, there was no one with whom I could share my joy. I was nineteen and had actually sold my first poems. No one in town, for that matter, could honor Harriet Monroe’s check for six dollars…. Unearned self-confidence, illusory independence, and peace of mind perhaps. But the poems were there attesting to something at the very least. And I may have been unable to return since to that pristine condition.” Past Mountain Dreaming Past Mountain Dreaming comprises thirteen essays on poetry followed by three “historical overviews” on our poetry from English and a concluding essay which sums up the author’s reflections on his own poetic and critical practice. His “poetics” assumes that the poet’s singular aim is the perfect word-weave as lightsome or as deep as the thing that the mind has perceived, imagined, or intuited. Apart from the significance (saysay) of the poem’s subject or theme (paksa), which is basically an interpretation, what is as crucial is the manner of expression, the poet’s own way with language whereby the poem’s “soul” or meaningfulness (diwa) is forged or endowed with its distinctive form: that is, the exact configuration of what has been experienced, imagined, or intuited. Such a poetics is only one possible theoria: that is, a particular standpoint or way of making sense that flows from certain basic assumptions about the nature of the literary work as both work of language and work of imagination.

Amburukay After twenty-five years and hard work the ten epics of Panay are finally out. Book II, titled Amburukay, centers on the hilarious character of the old ugly Amburukay who demands payment from Datu Labaw Donggon for the theft of her golden pubic hair. The allusion to a sexual innuendo brings to light the value of keeping a tuos, a customary law on a verbal promise which is sealed with a precious object. Have a feel of the archaic language and culture of the indigenous people of Panay, straight from an ancient island of the Philippines. Dr. Magos is a sociocultural anthropologist who started work on the epics almost twenty-five years ago. She is now Professor Emeritus.

Recuerdos de Patay “Caroline Hau’s fiction exhibits those characteristics that have long marked her scholarship: luminous prose, keen observation, trenchant insight. Spanning some twentyfive years these stories also tell a tale of her own journey as literary artist and scholar; from the plight of a ChineseFilipino woman during WWII grieving in silence the death of a husband to the sadly vain attempts of a turn-of-thecentury Kapampangan artist to make a precarious living and to keep alive vestiges of a dying culture by painting the dead, we glimpse too a record of our own passing.”— Charlson Ong Caroline S.

Sa Atong Dila According to Victor N. Sugbo, “The cultivation of regional literatures may not ask for a grand plan, but realizing this objective requires a concerted effort of our lawmakers, publishers, writers, readers, the academe and media, and our national government. By acknowledging the importance of regional literatures and local languages in the national culture, our different loyalties may be welded, since ethnicities are accorded respect and making national literature becomes a communal project.” Merlie M.

What Are You Doing Here “Haskell’s poetry can be sardonic, with a gentle irony bearing a cross-cultural stinging tail that does not spare his mates and suburbs, while overflowing with tenderness for most weak things in need of protection.The poems may look back half a century, to understand the self as callow teenager; but their profoundly unflinching centre looks at the present, of illness, dying, and loving through the years of nature’s unkindness … These poems are saved from unbearable pain by their grace, their music, and the muscularity of wit and intelligence.”—Shirley Geok-lin Lim Dennis Haskell has authored seven collections of poetry and thirteen volumes of literary scholarship and criticism.

Maybe Something “Here are poems that touch us then glide away before we can catch them, yet at times they stop us and cut like a penknife.”—Suchen Christine Lim “A lyricism of transgression and tenderness, of generous imagination as the self comes to terms with its displacement in the world.”—Paolo Manalo “These poems are a study of emotion, a subtle symphonic venturing into the themes of love and loss.

Twice Blessed The story of the Basbas fraternal twins as they burrow into the integument of power in Philippine politics, their rise accompanied by catastrophes big and small, to themselves, to the people around them and to the nation they aspire to dominate. A brilliant roman a clef, fast but lyrical, conferring a mythic dimension on even the banal and the putrid, as only the wondrous prose of Ninotchka Rosca can. Like most of her works, Twice Blessed is a narrative palimpsest, with an older timeless way of life glimmering through the words and events of the Basbas twins’ contemporary tale. “Devastating political satire by a fine writer …”—Andrea Dworkin Born in the Philippines, currently a resident of New York City, Ninotchka Rosca travels the world in search of stories and causes.



Derikaryong Pada The most beautiful maiden of her time blooms to full maturity and waits for the fulfillment of the tuos (the promise of having one’s daughter married to someone’s son), which is the hungaw—the traditional wedding. She is given the glittering derikaryong pada, a most expensive bride gift whose value is unequalled in the epic world. A most beautiful celebration is expected for such a lovely bride. But as the groom remains unprepared, the bride is given in marriage to another man. The maiden suffers through many episodes of anguish and turmoil until a difficult conflict is finally resolved. Dr. Magos is a sociocultural anthropologist who started work on the epics almost twenty-five years ago. She is now Professor Emeritus. Habagatanon This pride in one’s place—strongly visible as local color with familiar landmarks and local characters acting as agents of fate, fame, and fortune—proves true the idea expressed by Clifford Geertz that poetry indeed is “a craft of place: it works by the light of local knowledge.” It is what makes Davao writers poetic, and Davao itself a vibrant spot in the literary landscape of the country where life and the life of the written word thrive … —From the Introduction Ricardo M.

Entablado A collection of essays, this book attempts to continue the conversation on theater studies and performance studies in the context of Philippine scholarship. In the discussions, the trope of entablado is used as a central idiom. First, entablado refers to its literal meaning, as a space where a performance takes place. The space of the performance, however, is not only confined within the walls of an auditorium. It may also be in a street, a foyer of a huge cultural landmark, a river, or a school auditorium. Also, the space may not necessarily be a location exclusively for an artistic performance. It may be a space where people gather for the Divine, for entertainment, for a political protest, or for an academic conversation. Sir Anril Tiatco teaches Theater Arts at UP Diliman. Discovering Tuba This book introduces readers to tuba, an indigenous wine of the Philippines collected from each gentle drip of the sap from the inflorescence of a coconut. In Leyte and Samar, tuba is the traditional drink that flows freely during celebrations, fiestas, weddings, funeral wakes, and birthday parties. The wine binds together the Waraywaray-speaking people to seek a common purpose and gives them hope for a better future despite natural calamities, tragedies, and benign neglect. Arturo G.

Between Empire and Insurgency E. San Juan’s new work offers a continuation and elaboration of themes broached in his previous book published by UP Press, From Globalization to National Liberation. For both projects, the organizing motive is the sustained inquiry into the predicament of colonialism/neocolonialism and the quest for radical democratic transformation in the Philippines. The principles of historical materialism (articulated by Gramsci, Amado V. Hernandez, Renato Constantino, and others) inform the commentaries on authors, texts, and aesthetic discourses. Within the framework of globalization defined by the current imperial hegemony of the global North, the author investigates the process of the Filipino diaspora and its translation into fiction, reportage, and film. Dr. San Juan’s works of poetry and criticism have been translated into several languages.

RE: In this thoughtful and elegantly written book, Luis H. Francia “remembers, forgets, and reclaims” his Filipino-ness. In the 1970s, this flower child left for the lights of Broadway and the highly caffeinated and magical lifestyle of La Boheme. But soon enough he realized that he could never leave home, because the pesky Pinoy asserted itself at every moment, recurring like a bittersweet dream. The longer he stayed away from home, the keener became his vision of the islands and the institutions that reared him—the church that continued to treat its members as children, the feudalistic factory that continued to disgorge Marcoses in all shapes and sizes, and Pinoy entertainers who could belt out a moving, flag-waving national anthem followed right after by an equally soulful rendition of “God Bless America.” He finally understood that, try as hard as he might, he could never leave home because “in the diaspora” [and may I add in the home country], perhaps “the only true home for Filipino writers lies in the words we build, repositories of who we are and what we hold dear, that we bring wherever we may be, to render the space we inhabit a place at once sacred and mundane.” Praise be to this Pinoy prodigal poet who made progress by sticking his neck out.—Nicanor G.

“A scrupulously researched and compellingly argued work of historical sociology. Baldoz has an eye for telling details that help illuminate larger patterns of American empire, racial formation, and the politics of immigration. This elegant book makes a quantum leap by integrating Filipino and Filipino American scholarship and will surely become a classic in racial and ethnic studies.”—Evelyn Nakano Glenn, author of Forced to Care: Coercion and Caregiving in America “Rigorously argued and deeply documented, The Third Asiatic Invasion is an urgent and necessary book on how race and empire played out in the Filipino experience in America. Baldoz redefines how we should study race, moving beyond the banal assertion of race as a social construction to explain the continuous process of race and boundary making and remaking. Bravo!”—Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, author of Racism Without Racists

The Filipino Family This book is designed to be a comprehensive text on the sociology of the family as applied to the Philippine setting. It attempts to cover all aspects of the family: its structure, functions, and changes. It describes the patterns of social interaction among family members, as well as the relationship of the family with other social groupings and with society as a whole. Both traditional and changing patterns drawn from a more general review of universal family structures and relationships as well as data particular to the Filipino family are presented in terms of basic sociological concepts and principles.

The Lost Vision The Lost Vision gives an account of the Philippine left from 1986 to 2010, covering the events which have affected the movement in recent decades, such as the demise of the Soviet Union and the other European socialist regimes, and the splits in the CPP in the early 1990s which have led to a proliferation of both organizations and orientations. This third volume also examines the period in the late 1980s when cadres of the CPP, PKP, and others worked together at mass level in a number of progressive and anti-imperialist coalitions before disunity once again prevailed. Ken Fuller emigrated to the Philippines in 2003. This book completes his trilogy on the Philippine left.

Tikum Kadlum After twenty-five years and hard work the ten epics of Panay are finally out. Tikum Kadlum (Black Dog), Book I, narrates the hunting spree of Datu Paiburong, the cutting of the priced buriraw nga kawayan (a yellow-colored variety of bamboo), and the heavy payment demanded by the man-eating monster, Makabagting, from Datu Paiburong for the crashing of his priced burugsak (gold bell). From the mountain of Panay Island, to the cities, this book reaches out to its varied readers in three languages: contemporary Kinaray-a, Filipino (Tagalog), and English. Dr. Magos is a sociocultural anthropologist who started work on the epics almost twenty-five years ago. She is now Professor Emeritus. Snows of Yesteryear What may well be a Bildungsroman is Snows of Yesteryear, and its two parts, “A Family in War” and “A Sentimental Education,” are based on the experiences of the author from his childhood to the war years, his intellectual development, involvement in political struggle, and inevitable retirement. Hence, Snows of Yesteryear is autobiography disguised as a novel. It has elements of a roman à clef in that the author oftentimes uses actual names in the cast of characters. In many parts, the story is creative nonfiction. Elmer A. Ordoñez is a literary critic, editor, essayist, and retired professor of English and Comparative Literature from the UP Diliman.




Where No Words Break Where No Words Break consists mostly of new poems and spindrift verses since 1973. These play variations upon three interlocking themes: mind, language, poetry; self, love, family; and people, country, God. For any writer, no historical language, be that English or Filipino, is a given: rather, it is forged in that word’s triple sense: to form or shape, to mime or simulate, and to advance, to forge ahead. The ground of language is first only broken, as the Latin word versus (which signifies “furrows”) suggests. For the meanings of our words (whatever the language) do not arise so much from the differential play among them (where the words only read one another) as from lives lived as imagined through a people’s history and culture. Gémino H. Abad is Professor Emeritus at the UP Diliman. Masculinity, Media, and Their Publics in the Philippines Masculinity, Media, and Their Publics in the Philippines undertakes critical investigations into the forms by which masculinity is imagined, intuited, and instrumentalized in the contemporary postcolonial space of the Philippines. These investigations are primarily foregrounded upon the analysis and reflection of the political economy in Philippine visual culture through which these forms of masculinity are manifested, particularly through mass media practice. Subjects of Dr. Reuben Ramas Cañete’s essays in the book include Post-EDSA homoerotic cinema, outright pornography, Bench billboard ads, Manny Pacquiao, and the UP Oblation. The author teaches at the UP Diliman.

Dance and Other Slippages Rina Angela Corpus has compiled essays written from back when she was a graduate student in the 1990s which deal with questions in reading dance, art, and gender. The collection covers some of the most significant Philippine women choreographers. The essays explore and investigate the entanglements of aesthetics, sexual politics, and other realities that impact the field. Quoting Dr. Ann Dilis of the University of North Carolina: “(Corpus’s) subjects are made vivid through evocative description and attention to individual perspective. Her intersectional analyses explore questions of representation and agency in ways specific to the communities and artists she studies.” The author teaches Art Studies at the UP Diliman.



A Reader in Philippine Film This Reader was a result of a symposium held in January 2011, as a way of celebrating Tiongson’s sixty-sixth birthday and his retirement from UP. The papers presented at the symposium form the main body of this Reader, with additional papers from more scholars who could not participate in the symposium. Taken together, they reflect the range of the concerns and approaches in Philippine film studies today.—from the Preface Jonathan Chua is a faculty member of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, Ateneo de Manila University. Rosario Cruz-Lucero teaches Philippine literature and creative writing at the UP Diliman. Rolando B. Tolentino is Dean of the UP College of Mass Communication and faculty of the UP Film Institute. A Reader in Philippine Theater This is a Festschrift in honor of Nicanor G. Tiongson, intended to be a basic reference tool for the study of Philippine theater history, research methodologies, critical approaches, and its sources and influences; and as primary reader for faculty and students of Philippine theater courses. As such, the book avails readers of primary data and critical writings which here appear for the first time in print; and to map and account for the socio-historical and cultural contexts of the development of Philippine theater, thus showing both its national commonalities and regional specificities. Jonathan Chua is a faculty member of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, Ateneo de Manila University. Rosario Cruz-Lucero teaches Philippine literature and creative writing at the UP Diliman. Contestable Nation-Space Using the body of works of Filipino filmmaker Lino Brocka, the book examines the relations between cinema, cultural politics, and transnationalism in the Philippines. It analyzes issues of national and Third World cinemas, as problematized in Philippine cinema. Using the tropes of the city, family, body, and sexuality, the book explores the junctures in which the nation is contested. The focus of the study is on Marcos’s nation building, and how his efforts to modernize the nation continue to reverberate in subsequent national administrations. The author teaches at the UP College of Mass Communication.



Boy in the Platinum Palace and Other Stories Maria L.M. Fres-Felix, author of Boy in the Platinum Palace and Other Stories, is described by National Artist F. Sionil Jose as one of the few writers today who “knows how to write a story.” He goes on to describe her as a consummate craftsman, possessing both style and originality. Jose praises her “skillful use of choice verbs rather than adverbs and adjectives,” as well as her ability to incorporate tiny details which “contribute to the plausibility of the story.” This collection of short stories, the author’s second with UP Press, covers a range of settings, from domiciles, to corporate offices, to caregiving institutions. It does not limit itself to the present period but makes a foray into the country’s colonial past. The author is an award-winning fictionist and a former banker. Tattered Boat “Rhetorical questions implode throughout Luis H. Francia’s Tattered Boat … Given his global concerns and universal queries, the sea-tossing is still the inquisition of a planet fraught with false gods. “Answers lead to a revelation of neither-ness—as celestial mortal. And it spurs on the wanderer through islands rife with idiot loves and slaughtered angels … “Occasionally the poet as seer conjures the ordinary: a hand, a foot, a tree, a kiss, an encounter with a dentist. ’Tis all fair game for the troubadour who also surveys the ghosts of the younger self, survives after calibrating the very air, and reaches shore after shore.”—Krip Yuson, poet, Palanca Hall of Fame

Poisonostalgia “Poisonostalgia is a case against complacency. Here is a collection that manifests these times’ needed dexterity in both lyric and narrative poetry. It pokes fun where it must, pulls multicolored rabbits from a sequined hat. Here the poet tackles myriad concerns of modern urban living, in both sparse and complex diction, in experimentations with form. From ruminations on ruin and passing to declarations of distrust and disgust with the fake and the artificial, Gulle’s new book of poems is unabashed and undaunted. ‘Quietly as quite: / if no wing / nor word / arrives’ the poet writes, because not all nostalgia is an avenue for catharsis. And often the best recourse is not to stare, but to speak.”—Joel M. Toledo, poet, Palanca awardee The author is an award-winning poet and essayist.



The Postcolonial Perverse, Volumes I and II The Postcolonial Perverse is a two-volume collection of fifteen different critiques of varying “aspects” of contemporary Philippine culture. The work’s “eclectic” topics range from the independent cinema movement to the mystifications of nationalist poetics, from sacrilegious “avant-garde” art to the deconstruction of an inaugural text in the Philippine anglophone tradition, and from reflections on the contact zone between science and art to the impertinent question of our foremost national hero’s quizzical gender and sexual identity. The title’s two concepts—“postcolonial” and “perverse”—are almost symmetrically split across these two books, urging the reader to more sharply intuit and “experience” the project’s central theme: the postcolonial hybridity or cultural mixedness that characterizes Philippine life is the same thing as the perverse inability of its agents to stay committed to principled and categorical thought. Poet and literary critic J. Neil Garcia teaches at the UP Diliman.

Digital Cinema in the Philippines, 1999–2009 Digital Cinema in the Philippines, 1999–2009 traces the technological shift in Philippine cinema, from celluloid to digital, by narrating the history of digital cinema in the country from 1999 to mid-2009. It investigates how digital films in the Philippines are produced, distributed, and exhibited, as well as tentatively examines Philippine digital cinema’s aesthetic tendencies that emerged from the shift from celluloid to digital filmmaking. The book also explores the notions of independence in relation to Philippine digital cinema and the Philippine film industry. Eloisa May P. Hernandez teaches at the UP Diliman.



The Murmur Asylum “This first collection of ten poems by Ned Parfan, six of which are lyric sequences, offers the ear and eye voices of splintered selves breaking out of dark passages of childhood trauma, and images broken off from the core of chaos-as-point of origin. The poems’ aperture into human asylums of pain is constantly widened by personae intent on conversing with each other and with others, propelled by the desire to rebel against or to surrender to the untouchable darkness at the edge of mortal vision. The poetic imagination of Parfan hurtles through time and space, the way it moves through stations of the LRT when the flood of typhoon Ondoy wrought near-apocalyptic visions of water as the end of life as we once knew it.”— Marjorie Evasco, poet, Palanca awardee

Kundiman sa Gitna ng Karimlan E. San Juan Jr., a writer and a literary critic, uses his poetry to reflect his advocacy in the struggle for supremacy between global capitalism and national proletarianism. Ang wika ay isang matinding larangan ng pakikibaka ng mga uri, lakas, at iba’t ibang sektor ng lipunan sa bawat yugto ng kasaysayan. Sa balangkas at prosesong umuugit sa mga salita nakaugat ang paraan ng interpelasyon ng mambabasa/nakikinig upang maging sabjek na sumusunod sa naghaharing orden, o tumututol at lumalaban. … [Anumang] paksa o tema, estilo o estruktura, talinghaga o sagisag, ay maaaring gamitin upang makisangkot at lumahok sa pagpapasiya kung sino … ang magtatagumpay sa wakas.

Taburos Han Dagat Newly retired UP Visayas Professor Victor N. Sugbo’s Taburos Han Dagat pays tribute to his hometown, Tacloban—the city of his fondest affections, and now most lyrical grief, in the wake of typhoon Yolanda’s horrific onslaught. These poems were written by the author while he was living in temporary (and paradoxical) exile in various places in the arid Near East—an ironic experience of cross-cultural dialogue that the book captures in its parallel-text presentation of translations from the original Waray to English, which the poet himself so expertly performed. Delicate and elemental, the poems in either language are spindrift moments of brief but intense illumination, shimmering on the mind’s placid surface before vanishing, softly, into its meditative depths.



Vantage Point With the clinical eye of an academic, former UP College of Mass Communication Dean Luis Teodoro marshals data and historical contexts to pin down the powerholders, sparing no one—much unlike other “pundits” who dribble words for their patrons’ pleasure. Teodoro spares no institution that lumbers like a dinosaur: landlords who perpetuate dynasties and form private armies; archbishops who sermonize about critical collaboration and power-sharing; the Supreme Court which lets slip, with indecent glory, its partisan patronage.

Media at Lipunan and Communication and Media Theories Edited by a team of mass communication experts, Media at Lipunan and Communication and Media Theories respond to the basic and urgent need for compendiums of scholarly ruminations on Philippine mass media culture— its texts, contexts, forms, and publics. This is the very first time that books of this sort have been assembled— comprised entirely of critical and theoretical essays on communication, mass media, and cultural studies, written exclusively by Filipinos—and the University of the Philippines Press is entirely enthused and honored to bring this project to full fruition. These are excellent reference books that document, organize, and make accessible to the public essential readings in mass media studies. Lead editor Rolando B. Tolentino teaches at the UP College of Mass Communication.



Transfiksyon Transfiksyon is a collection of new fictional journeys intransit, unique Filipino experiences of crossing borders, challenging memory, subverting ideology, and moving the self. Tayo’y mga manlalakbay sa kani-kaniyang panahon. Narito ang mga kuwentong itinala gamit ang malikhaing isipan at lumikha ng mga bakas na hindi na mabubura. Lunan ng Transfiksyon ang iba’t ibang anyo ng pakikipagsapalaran sa malalawak at makikitid na espasyo, sa kawalan, sa panaginip, sa nakaraan, at hinaharap. Sina Rolando B. Tolentino at Rommel Rodriguez ay nagtuturo sa UP Diliman.

The book, Changing Philippine Climate: Impacts on Agriculture and Natural Resources, presents the state of the knowledge on the effects of man-made global warming on the Philippines, focusing in particular on the weather, topographical, and aquatic systems, including their uniquely threatened biodiversities. Authored by eminent Filipino scientists, this book includes mitigation and adaptation strategies, as well as risk management recommendations, directed mostly at local and national structures of governance. The work, however, never loses sight of the overall global environmental picture, and thus invites the critical-minded reader to appreciate the complexity of the geopolitical situation within which any future solutions to this ecological emergency must be framed. Lead editor Josefino Comiso works with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Cesar Virata UP Professor Emeritus Gerardo Sicat’s biography of former Prime Minister Cesar Virata is a work of scholarship and meticulous research as well as a compellingly written piece of creative nonfiction. The subject’s life unfolds within the matrix of his nation’s economic history—as an educator in the national university, as a technocrat and prime minister during the Marcos years, and thereafter as a private citizen, a banker, and a respected senior statesman. Prime Minister Virata’s life serves as a unique prism through which to see and appreciate the complexity of Philippine economic history. As told from the necessarily subjective perspective of a fellow economist and participant-observer, this book provides a much-needed space within which one may reflect on the interesting convergences between the Philippines’ economic and political histories.

Historia de Ilocos Serialized in various newspapers of the day, Historia de Ilocos was finally published in two volumes in 1890. The first volume covers Ilocos’s prehistory while the second volume deals with Ilocos history from the sixteenth century onwards. Historia de Ilocos was awarded a gold medal at the Manila and Madrid Expositions. Isabelo de los Reyes wrote from his knowledge and experiences as an Ilocano to further knowledge about Philippine culture. He wanted Filipinos to know their cultural heritage, and to be proud of it. Translated into English by Maria Elinora Peralta Imson, this rich heritage may now be accessed by today’s generation of Filipinos.

Educational Leadership The book features scholars from or located in Asia, or working elsewhere, writing under the distinct but related fields of educational leadership and leadership education in Asian contexts. The book therefore responds to the current dearth of literature on leadership from scholars working or situated in Asia, and thus, contexts other than North America, and Western Europe—the reigning leadership textbook capitals of the globe. A vibrant, dynamic, changing, and adaptive Asia is the context, while the givens are changes brought about by neoliberalism, information technology, globalization, and an environment more sensitive to gender, ethnic, and socio-cultural-political differences. Lead editor Narcisa Canilao teaches in UP Baguio. Ambagan 2011


The book contains articles that aim to discuss the important indigenous terms from various regions and how these terms contribute to the enrichment of the evolving Filipino language.

Horror Perhaps the first of its kind released in the Philippines, Horror: Filipino Fiction for Young Adults was conceived solely with the Filipino young adult reader in mind, with stories that explore the concerns and fears of today’s youth through the lens of horror written by new and experienced authors. Horror: Filipino Fiction for Young Adults is the first of a series of anthologies covering science fiction, fantasy, and other genres, presented by award-winning editors Dean Francis Alfar and Kenneth Yu.



The Farthest Shore The anthology The Farthest Shore: An Anthology of Fantasy Fiction from the Philippines is a homage to secondary world stories in the vein of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, Frank Herbert’s Dune, and George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones. Though the latter stories had fantastical settings only faintly similar to our reality and populated by monsters that had absolutely no relation to our creatures of the night, these books still developed a love in us for the fantastic and helped us appreciate the magic of our own stories. Here, you’ll encounter stories about a gigantic turtle-like beast traveling in space, a young woman’s cry for justice in an imagined world, and a witch-queen intent on escaping a deal with the devil. Welcome to the shores created by Filipino imagination. Welcome to The Farthest Shore. The Best of Philippine Speculative Fiction 2005–2010 Between these covers are the best short stories of fantasy, horror, science fiction, and genres in-between, selected from the first five years of the Philippine Speculative Fiction annuals. Step through the portal and explore worlds old and new and experience the power of the literature of the imagination as crafted by Filipino authors. This collection was compiled and edited by award-winning fictionists Dean Francis Alfar and Nikki Alfar.

Filipinas Textos Cercanos According to Javier Sicilia, “in Philippines, Closer Texts, Tomás Calvillo has abandoned all the certainty that was characteristic of his previous poetic works, and having assumed the historical paradigm shift of the times, he allows a unique poetic resonance to be heard amidst all the disconcert, suffering, and emptiness. Calvillo’s work is an unreachable mystery that travels through our collective memory brilliantly deciphering humor and tenderness.” This current bilingual edition encompasses 55 of the 179 poems published in the original Spanish edition. It is also the first volume of work from the author to be presented in the Philippines. The author was born in Mexico and writes poetry, short stories, movie scripts, and experimental literary works.



Travelbook Travelbook: Poems is a journeying “into self as well as into the world” that follows “the sense of the curviform, or the yonic.” It takes the reader into the open-ended and recurrent experiences of beginnings, ends, and new beginnings in poems on growing up, leaving home, going against norms, identifying with the strange, and encountering mysteries, lovers, cities, selves, homes, death, and rebirth. Shane Carreon is an award-winning poet and teaches at the UP Cebu.

Except You Enthrall Me “In Mark Anthony Cayanan’s new collection, Except You Enthrall Me, the speaker wants to “know enough to turn away before desire,” but as these gorgeous poems demonstrate time and again, ultimately this is an exercise in defeat. Here is a poet who slips effortlessly between the fantasy and the fact, the beloved and the shadow, a world in which, in the moment after love, one can “taste ashes in the air.” Visionary, lyrical, the heart left battered and shining, Except You Enthrall Me ravishes.”—Quan Barry The author teaches at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Shockbox “In this book’s affirmation of the power of poetic collaboration, we hear the poems in Tagalog and English carefully bring together, on the page and in the ear, different ways with language that give breath to what Kulas Talon’s itinerant urban troubadour observes in the boxwithin-the-box-within-the-possibly bigger-boxes where everybody seems to live. His poems punch holes into these boxes, exposing the oftentimes raw and rendered pointless, and the observing eye leaves the reader with the detritus of the scene for rumination of a deadening world. Let not the Shockbox revelations reiterate in our reading and re-readings the prophetic lament in the opening poem ‘Kahon’: Sinubukan niyang ipaliwanag ito sa ibang tao ngunit walang makinig.”—Marjorie Evasco, Poet, Palanca awardee



Demons of the New Year Demons of the New Year: An Anthology of Horror Fiction from the Philippines represents horror written by Filipino writers elaborating on the unique perspective of local horror. These are more than just rehashed tales from the provinces about Filipino mythological monsters like the aswang and the tikbalang. Nor are these your run-of-themill ghost stories told thrice over during sleepovers, with a flashlight shining in your face and your kumot pulled over your head. Within these pages, you will find tales of haunted houses, demon hunters, monster pop stars, and more. Welcome to the darkness that feeds on Filipino nightmares. But remember: don’t let them in.

Diaspora Ad Astra The anthology Diaspora Ad Astra: An Anthology of Science Fiction from the Philippines represents science fiction made by Filipinos for Filipinos. This collection of stories looks at the future of Filipinos as we ask and wonder: will we be exporting human workers to Mars or will we be ruling a new Empire of Humanity? Or will we be running a guerrilla war against mad robots as the rest of homo sapiens flee into space in derelict battleships? Because of this, we’ve collected these Filipino stories that look into a multitude of possible futures. Moreover, with these stories, we offer you hope that there will be a future where Filipinos will still—whether we attain greatness or not—play a role on the stage of humanity.

Ang Makina ni Mang Turing A postmodern novel by Ramon Guillermo, set in the nineteenth century during the time of Rizal and other heroes. Detalyadong inilarawan sa nobela ang paglalaro ng sungka, mula sa pinakapayak nitong anyo: “Magsisimula ang laro sa sabay na pagdakot ng dalawang manlalaro ng mga sigay sa alinmang maliit na bahay sa kanilang hanay at tig-iisang paghahasik ng mga sigay sa maliliit na bahay at sa kani-kanilang malaking bahay…. Hindi maglalagay ng sigay sa malaking bahay ng kalaban. Kapag naubos na ang kanyang hinahasik at walang laman ang nabagsakang bahay ng pinakahuli niyang sigay ay tapos na ang kanyang turno …” Detalyado ang masalimuot na paraan ng pagtatagumpay sa larong ito ngunit mahihinuhang may higit na malalim na ipinahihiwatig ang nobela.



Mga Tula This collection of Gelacio Guillermo’s poetry reflects his commitment to proletarian literature, trying to capture and foreground the sentiments of the Philippine working class. “Kahit ano’ng itawag sa sulating ito … si Gelacio ang pinakamahusay na nagsusulong niyon. [Ang] mga tula sa aklat na ito ay tungkol sa masa at sila ay sining. Nangungusap sa tinig ng mamamayan at sila’y panulaan, komited sa buhay at pagmamahal at sila’y panitikan. … Narito ang daigdig na hinimay hanggang sa pinakaubod. Narito ang buhay na nilubos at taimtim na pinagmunimunian. … Narito ang hikbi at awit mula sa kaibuturan ng isang tao na mangyaring hikbi’t awit din ng iba.”—Conrad de Quiros, Columnist, Philippine Daily Inquirer The Second World “Rafael Antonio C. San Diego’s first book of poems is truly remarkable. From poem to poem—or poem or prose, if you will—one is struck by their inimitable finesse. Here is an original, innovative, and sturdy voice in our own poetry’s heartland where the language forged from English is of our sweat and blood in our own scene and time.”—Gémino H. Abad, Professor Emeritus, UP Diliman The author is a Palanca awardee and UP National Writers’ workshop fellow.

The Urian Anthology 2000–2009 The fourth in the series, the Urian Anthology 2000– 2009 gathers articles, reviews, interviews, and other materials that focus on the most important cinematic phenomenon of the decade: the rise of the Philippine New Wave indie film. This book gives a comprehensive introduction to the Philippine New Wave by tracing its historical development, its modes of production, its aesthetics and styles, and its politics and impact on contemporary society. It also puts together reviews of selected films that represent the commercial genre movies that the film industry continued to produce during the decade: drama, bomba, comedy, romantic comedy, action film, and horror/fantasy.

Science Philippines Volume II Science Philippines is a compilation of Star Science articles that have been arranged under broad classifications of the sciences. As the editor explains in her Introduction, “Who are our writers? Dedicated Filipino scientists and engineers here and abroad who wish to share their scientific work and philosophy with the Filipino public— to heighten the awareness of our government and media leaders, private industry, entrepreneurs, professionals, nonprofessionals, and most especially our youth, their parents and teachers, of the value of science to society.� Editor Gisella Concepcion teaches at the UP Diliman.

Introduction to Philippine Politics This book is comprised of a set of supplementary readings that form part of the multivolume Third World Perspectives on Politics Series. These readings, originally published in Kasarinlan: Philippine Journal of Third World Studies, adopt a developing country perspective, or more appropriately a Third World perspective, in comparison to most readings in Philippine politics. This volume provides a number of analytical tools and frameworks that can be used as theoretical and methodological handles in the study of Philippine politics. Maria Ela Atienza teaches Political Science at the UP Diliman.

Introduction to Statistics and Econometrics Introduction to Statistics and Econometrics, second edition, is a book for beginning econometrics students. The major change in this edition is the addition of a chapter on logistic regression, a model of binary choice that is now commonly used in many disciplines including economics. Other changes include a section on instrumental variable estimation, end-of-chapter appendices on the use of Stata, in addition to EViews, to implement econometric techniques, and editorial revisions to improve exposition. Despite these changes, this edition retains the basic purpose and the basic format of the first edition, which won the 2004 National Academy of Science and Technology Outstanding Book Award. Rolando Danao is Professor Emeritus at the UP Dilman.

Comparative Politics and Government This book on comparative politics and government seeks to elaborate and supplement analytical tools and frameworks in which developing countries could be compared. Of major concern is to be able to use this in understanding what have been the problems in the process of development and democratization of developing regions. The articles also seek to provide a basis by which the reader could also critically examine the views presented by the different authors and note their relevance or irrelevance in comprehending similar situations as experiences in developing societies. The editors are faculty of the Department of Political Science in the UP Diliman.

Agricultural Policy This book is a teaching material for an undergraduate course in agricultural policy. It contextualizes agricultural policy in terms of the interrelationships of the agricultural sector with the rest of the macro and global economies. The specific policies include land/agrarian reform, fertilizer and seed subsidies, and other concerns in the context of trade and industrial protection, irrigation, and mechanization. Policies related to credit in support of farming activities, as well as research and development to increase production possibilities for farmers, are also discussed. The book also introduces topics on food safety issues, environmental concerns, and quantitative analytical tools to encourage students to explore advanced aspects of agricultural policy. The author teaches at the UP Los BaĂąos.

Islamic Far East Islam is a universal civilization built on the foundations of the classical world that has spread to the four corners of the earth. This book, Islamic Far East: Ethnogenesis of Philippine Islam, is a preliminary attempt to integrate/ unify the Islamization of the North, South, West, and East into one worldwide phenomenon, and locate the beginnings of Islamization in the Philippines within an Islamic historical framework. Describing the keys of Islam as a revolutionary message that linked nations in a shared civilization from West to East, from the Iberian Peninsula to China, in a global human and commercial network, the book tries to contextualize how the Philippine Archipelago became the Islamic world’s easternmost edge.

Costly Wars, Elusive Peace Costly Wars, Elusive Peace covers two decades of armed conflict and peace building in post-Marcos Philippines. It provides incisive assessments on the major armed conflicts in the country. Articles on the debates within the ranks or between the protagonists, the roles played by civil society organizations and other third parties, the integration of combatants, the unfinished reconstruction of regional autonomy in Mindanao, and development and international assistance reflect on the other dimensions of a country grappling with the intricacies of its own wars. The author is the Chair of the Philippine Government Peace Panel in talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

Mindanao on My Mind and Other Musings Eight years after community journalist Nikki Rivera Gomez came out with his first anthology, Coffee and Dreams on a Late Afternoon: Tales of Despair and Deliverance in Mindanao, comes this second volume of essays on his troubled but steadfast homeland. Mindanao on My Mind and Other Musings spans nearly three decades of the author’s insights, from a quieter Davao to today’s unrelenting progress, from college theater to threatened watersheds, from old poems to unyielding Baby Boomers, from the romance of yore to the quest for peace. This book is as much the Mindanawon’s gaze into his eventful past as it is a journey into his hopeful future.

Virtual Nation Virtual Nation explores “a new way of being nation that Filipinos at home and all over the world are creating in cyberspace,” as it contends that Filipinos are “still creating the nation our revolutionary forefathers envisioned and died for” … Most of the essays in this book are opinion columns originally written for online publication from 2003 to 2010. In those seven turbulent years major global challenges to peace and survival in the threefold crises of our time—ecological, economic, and spiritual—converged. Sylvia Mayuga is a long-time journalist and essayist who has written for various Philippine publications.

The Other View Volume III “Retired UP Professor, Elmer Ordoñez’s new powerful collection of essays from his Manila Times column is sure to provoke debate, stir up the miasmic fog in people’s brains, and awaken the hibernating energies of our impoverished intelligentsia. From his days as Collegian editor and UP sage, Ordoñez has uncompromisingly articulated a progressive stand against obscurantist imperialist, neocolonial policies and institutions. We, his students and the youthful generation today, are blessed that in his retirement Ordoñez continues to be a militant, inspiring voice for social justice, national democracy, and liberation.

Tapping Ink, Tattooing Identities “Based on long-term and in-depth fieldwork, the author documents traditional tattooing practices and designs and explores the origins and meanings of designs. However, this book also takes into account the contemporary relevance of tattooing as an aspect of asserting identity as well as a practice that draws tourists into the region. As such, the author demonstrates comprehensively that the tattooing practices of the Kalinga have both a long history as well as a hopefully vibrant future.”—Elizabeth Ewart and Marcus Banks Analyn Salvador Amores teaches at the UP Baguio.

Hoard of Thunder, Volumes I and II Hoard of Thunder, together with Upon Our Own Ground (2008) and Underground Spirit (2010), completes the sixvolume historical anthology series on Philippine short stories over 1956 to 2008. The Introduction to Hoard of Thunder is an overview essay on our short fiction since 1925 to the present. Throughout the series, the stories forge from English our writers’ imagination of our own historical experience as a people: how we Filipinos think and feel about our world and so, justify the way we live. Whatever form the story takes, realist or nonrealist, you are moved by its image of a lifetime or a moment lived that the story’s words have evocatively forged; that image sums up and makes into a whole the story’s meaningfulness by which its form has been achieved. That meaningfulness too is what raises the story to the universal plane of human experience—not the realm of eternal verities, but rather the site of everlasting quest and questioning. Whatever the future holds for our country’s literature in English (in Filipino as well, and in other Philippine languages), there can be no doubt as to its continuing vigor in craftsmanship and innovation in light of, and also despite, every theory or critical orientation, because the writer will always cherish above all his freedom against any imposition of a theoretical standpoint or ideological bias in matters of content and vision. His craft is his own to cultivate and refine; he makes his own clearing within a given historical language. Gémino H. Abad is Professor Emeritus at the UP Diliman.

The Queen Lives Alone The Queen Lives Alone: Personal Essays gathers together sixteen nonfiction texts on cosmopolitan existence, people’s idiosyncrasies, poetic musings, and family stories. Through wit and humor, the author connects these four threads to tell the different facets of love—loving the self, loving the other, and loving the sublime. There are no grand events or life-changing miracles in this book— only the simplest details of the everyday, the smallest of gestures, and the littlest acts of kindness. In the end, The Queen Lives Alone is about the agonizing grace of being alone, of being alive. Ronald Baytan teaches at the De La Salle University in Manila.



Sacrificial Bodies Sacrificial Bodies is a comprehensive study on how the act of heroic sacrifice against foreign aggression has been transformed into a means of liberating generations of Filipinos from all forms of oppression, through the iconic pose and location of Guillermo Tolentino’s sculpture, the Oblation, within the University of the Philippines (UP) campus. The book chronicles the ideas, philosophies, and genealogy of this statue from the turn of the century to the present, combining approaches in anthropology, art history, political science, and literary theory in fleshing out the various meanings and implications of this pose. Reuben Ramas Cañete teaches at the UP Diliman.

La India, or Island of the Disappeared Innocence, fear, and intrigue permeate this collection of interrelated stories, which span more than four hundred years, from the time of the fictional Datu Kalantiaw to the postmodern phenomenon of migrant labor. The result is a concatenation of tales, legends, official history, alternative histories, mythic and fairy-tale formulas, and all manner of discourse that the author could pull out of the cornucopia of texts that compose Philippine island life. National Artist Cirilo F. Bautista describes the stories as “a wonderful weave of history and imagination, showing Rosario CruzLucero’s expertise with language and narrative structure.” The author teaches at the UP Diliman.

Vanishing History and Other Poems “Edel Garcellano’s poetry is deeply moving and richly peopled: here, the silenced victims of an oligarchic state, remembered by grieving survivors; there, false revolutionaries unmasked by teachers weary of miseducation. The dead and their executioners; soldiers and guerillas; activists and criminals; farmers and politicians; and everywhere, lovers lost and remembered, old and young, cruel and tender.”—Felicidad Cua Lim, University of California, Irvine The author teaches at the UP Diliman.



Supremo This book is a tribute of husband and wife Domingo and May Landicho to the 150th birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio in 2013. It is composed of a TV script by the husband and a zarzuela by the wife. Ang dalawang akda sa aklat ay bunga ng magkahiwalay na panahon ng pagsulat at kapwa nagkamit ng pagkilala sa taon ng paglikha.

Ka Amado Jun Cruz Reyes writes what he believes a “modern epic” of the nation through this biography of Amado V. Hernandez, a famous Filipino labor leader and poet who was later declared as National Artist for Literature. “Sa kanyang bagong akdang ito, hangad ni Jun Cruz Reyes na ilahad ang ipinapalagay niyang “bagong epiko” ng bansang Pilipinas sa anyo ng isang biograpiya ni Ka Amado. … [Hindi] lamang matutunton dito ang “makabagong epiko” ng ating bansa tulad ng ipinapalagay ni Reyes. Taliwas sa inaasahan, lumilitaw rin ito bilang mapa ng mayaman at malikot na kaisipan at pilosopiya ng nag-akda mismo nitong biograpiya.”—Dr. Ramon G. Guillermo Si Jun Cruz Reyes ay nagturo sa UP Diliman. In Medias Res Widely acknowledged in the journalism community as an authority on media and press issues especially journalism ethics and professional standards, former UP College of Mass Communication Dean, Luis V. Teodoro has selected for this volume some of the most relevant and most thought-provoking essays ever written in this country on the complexities of journalism and media practice in the Philippines. While an invaluable guide in understanding the state of the Philippine press and media, this volume also demonstrates that knowledge of the ethical and professional measures used in the evaluation of media performance is critical in enabling readers, viewers, and listeners of both the old and the new media to judge the press and media for themselves.

Introduction to Classical and Variational Partial Differential Equations This book aims to introduce classical and variational PDEs to graduate and postgraduate students in Mathematics. Part I gives a comprehensive overview of classical PDEs, that is, equations which admit smooth (strong) solutions, verifying the equations pointwise. Part II deals with variational PDEs, where weak solutions are considered. These solutions verify a weak formulation of the equations and belong to suitable spaces of functions, the Sobolev spaces. The theory of Sobolev spaces provides the foundation for the study of variational PDEs. A comprehensive and detailed presentation of these spaces and the Sobolev embeddings is presented. The authors are faculty from the UP Institute of Mathematics. Science Philippines Volume I Science Philippines is a compilation of Star Science articles that have been arranged under broad classifications of the sciences. As the editor explains in her Introduction, “Who are our writers? Dedicated Filipino scientists and engineers here and abroad who wish to share their scientific work and philosophy with the Filipino public— to heighten the awareness of our government and media leaders, private industry, entrepreneurs, professionals, nonprofessionals, and most especially our youth, their parents and teachers, of the value of science to society.” Editor Gisella Concepcion teaches at the UP Diliman.

Archaeology and Emerging Kabikolan What is Bikol archaeology? Is it simply an inventory of finds, a list of sites, or a display of artifacts in a museum? Is it only a narration of events, a culture-historical sequence of human progress in the region? And, if there is such a thing as Bikol archaeology, how does it relate to the archaeology of the rest of the Philippines? This book is relevant for anthropologists and archaeologists looking for novel ways by which to appreciate the deeper past of a contemporary Philippine region, as well as those seeking to develop regional archaeological studies. More importantly, it is relevant to today’s Bikolanos by presenting a more well-rounded reckoning of their identity’s past and directions for the future. Andrea Malaya M. Ragragio teaches at the UP Mindanao.

Foundation Course in College Chemistry College freshman students pursuing different career courses (engineering, science, health, teacher education, or general education courses) need a strong foundation in chemistry on which to build their future learning. This book aims to cultivate in these students both functional and conceptual literacy in chemistry, learning not only its language and vocabulary, but more importantly, its conceptual schemes and organizing principles, such as the Atomic Theory, the Periodic Law, the Kinetic Molecular Theory, and the Laws of Thermodynamics. To develop procedural literacy, students are honed on the scientific processes and methods that scientists employ in searching for new information.

Foundation Course in College Chemistry (A Teacher’s Guide) This manual, a companion to the book Foundation Course in College Chemistry, provides basic teaching guidelines for the chemistry teacher: covering goals, teaching strategies, concept mapping, and assessments. It also lists the main science concepts in each chapter as well as the answers to the self-assessment questions contained in the book. Marcelita Coronel Magno taught at the UP Diliman.

Green Jobs and Green Skills in a Brown Philippine Economy Green Jobs and Green Skills in a Brown Philippine Economy is Dr. Rene Ofreneo’s contribution to a multicountry global study on the skills and education dimensions of the greening processes in the global economy organized by the International Labour Office and the UN Environmental Programme. This book shows how a green alignment of education and training activities can support the level and skills requirements of green/er industries, as reflected in the case studies of a copper smelter, a fast-food chain, a bioethanol plant, and an organic agriculture farm. The author is former Dean of the School of Labor and Industrial Relations in the UP Diliman.



The Political Supreme Court This book looks at Supreme Court decisions through the lens of a political behaviorist without the blinders on the eyes of the law practitioner. The focus is on Supreme Court leading cases on constitutional law, because it is when the high court decides constitutional cases that it becomes a political body, for good or for ill. This holds true especially under the present constitution, which has virtually erased the fine line initially drawn under the late and unlamented separation of powers principle, such that when two political bodies meet—e.g., the Supreme Court and Congress—it results in a clash of titans, which reached its peak in the recent impeachment of a chief justice drama that has now become part of our legal history. Pacifico Agabin was Dean of the College of Law at UP Diliman. Flames Over Baler The Siege of Baler is a well-known episode in the Philippines, particularly in connection with the PhilippineSpanish Friendship Day and the 2008 remarkable movie on the siege. Using a deep knowledge of archival sources both in the Philippines and Spain, this reconstruction of the siege brings up the specific details of the complex process of estrangement between the besieged and the besiegers, and the extraordinary dedication and courage that both Filipinos and Spaniards demonstrated to achieve victory, providing a case study for knowledge of the military strategies used at the end of the nineteenth century and the role of image and perceptions in conflict resolution. Carlos Madrid is a historian, researcher, and writer.

Beautiful Accidents In twelve stories collected from a decade of writing fiction, the much-awarded Dumaguete writer Ian Rosales Casocot attempts to rescue personal experience from the ephemera of travel and sexual limbo, and in the process makes his stories a fixative art, each one a grand evocation of style. “Beautiful accidents litter his stories, like glass shards from a collision ‌ He uses language amorously, as a lover savors a kiss, so that passion becomes as real as the rhythm of his sentences,â€? writes Timothy R. Montes of this collection of stories, where once proud fathers fade after the golden age of sugarcane in Negros, where mothers are fossilized in the celluloid memories of old movies, and where the very young play dangerous games as they hustle for sex, love, and attention in the small and weary world of university towns.



Gramatikang Filipino This book is an attempt by Resty Mendoza Ceña and Ricardo Ma.

Six Sketches of Filipino Women Writers In this, her latest book, fictionist/essayist/scholar Cristina Pantoja Hidalgo focuses on the women writers of her own generation who are still writing today. She describes her plan as “modest,” and her project as “six sketches” or “cameos,” which she hopes will “also recreate, albeit in fragmentary fashion, the world in which we came of age as writers and continue to work in today.” “Many of the women with whom we started our careers have stopped writing. Many of those who are still writing have chosen to live elsewhere. In a sense, we are survivors. I wanted to write about us and what has made us what we are.” The author is Professor Emeritus at the UP Diliman.

Geek Tragedies “Whether in superhero costume, in cosplay, or in street clothes (or in hardly any clothes at all), each story in this collection comes snug in language and streetwise in sensibility, and engages us and sweeps us off as swiftly as an oncoming MRT Just get on, and get off on the characters and their destinations. Because we know their daydreams and wished for destinies really secretly mirror ours. And so we also know, of course, that each of these tragedies is really a victory for Carljoe Javier.”—Sarge Lacuesta Carljoe Javier is an award-winning writer who teaches at the UP Diliman.

Lagalag ng Paglaya This book is a collection of postmodern stories of Rommel Rodriguez, a professor at the UP Diliman. Narito ang kuwento ng isang environmentalist na may bulok na ngipin, aliping sinagip ng dunong sa tiyak na panganib, mga mandirigmang mailap, at batang manggagamot na nilason ng digmaan ang puso’t isip. May sumasayaw na anino ng mga poon, paglisan ng pag-ibig sa syudad, at paghanap sa kadugong nawalay sa kabundukan. May kuwento tungkol sa bawal at huwad na disiplina ng estado, pagbuo sa naputol na ugnayan, paglaro sa kulay ng imahinasyon, at pananatili sa kawalang-katiyakan. May salaysay para magsilbing bago ang kakaiba, lumikha ng tiwalag na tala, at humubog ng mamamatay-tao sa anyo ng mistulang pinuno ng isang bansa. Miss Dulce Extranjera Sir Anril Tiatco, a professor at the UP Diliman, uses two characters in this experimental play to depict the debate on what is more important in theater: text or performance. He also uses historical documents as bases for the content of the play. Ito ay isang dula base sa maraming dokumentong historikal. Mandudula ang dalawang pangunahing tauhan. Maaari silang usisain bilang “biktima” ng awtoridad at manipulasyon. Kagaya ng patuloy na debate hinggil sa “text versus performance” ng diskurso sa teatro, isinakatawang-tao ng mga ito ang debate hinggil sa kung alin ang awtoridad sa teatro: teksto o pagtatanghal sa pamamagitan ng kanilang komprontasyon sa arkayb at ng mapaglarong dokumentong historikal.

A Movement Divided In Forcing the Pace (UP Press, 2007, a National Book Award finalist in 2008), historian Ken Fuller followed the progress of the Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) from its foundation in 1930 to the defeat of the Huk Rebellion in the mid-1950s. In A Movement Divided, he continues the story until the fall of Ferdinand Marcos in 1986. The author traces the PKP’s painstaking attempts to rebuild, its conclusion of a political settlement with Marcos in 1974, and the development of the increasingly anti-imperialist stance which informed its approach to Marcos.

Filipino Crosscurrents In this book University of Minnesota Professor, Kale Bantigue Fajardo examines the cultural politics of seafaring, Filipino maritime masculinities, and globalization in the Philippines and the Filipino diaspora. Drawing on fieldwork conducted on ships and in the ports of Manila and Oakland, as well as on an industrial container ship that traveled across the Pacific, Fajardo argues that Filipino seamen have become key figures through which the Philippine state and economic elites promote Filipino masculinity and neoliberal globalization.

Mixed Blessing The book, published in 2002 by Greenwood Press, has been extensively modified for this second edition. Several of the essays in the first edition have been replaced with new essays more directly relevant to the main theme of the complex Philippines-US interaction—characterized during the twentieth century by a mix of acute resentment and affectionate imitation. A new introduction also summarizes developments during the past decade, noting that ambivalence vis-à-vis the US has been somewhat attenuated, in part by the redress of a historical wrong when President Obama created in 2009 the Filipino Veterans Equity Compensation Fund. Editor Hazel M. McFerson teaches at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. Dead Stars This book examines the American colonization of the Philippines from three distinct but related literary perspectives. The first is the reaction of anti-imperialist American writers Mark Twain, W. E. B. Du Bois, and William James to America’s first foray into the role of colonizer and how their varied essays, letters, and speeches provide an incisive delineation of fundamental conflicts in American identity at the turn of the twentieth century. The book then analyzes how these same conflicts surface in the colonial regime’s use of American literature as a tool to inculcate American values in the colonial educational system. Finally, Dead Stars considers the way three early and important Filipino writers—Paz Marquez Benitez, Maximo Kalaw, and Juan C. Laya—interpret and represent these same tensions in their fiction. The author teaches at the University of Hong Kong.

Things Fall Away “In Things Fall Away, Neferti X. M. Tadiar offers a new paradigm for understanding politics and globalization. Through close readings of poems, short stories, and novels brought into conversation with scholarship in anthropology, sociology, politics, and economics, Tadiar demonstrates how the devalued experiences of the Philippines’ vast subaltern populations—experiences that ‘fall away’ from the attention of mainstream and progressive accounts of the global capitalist present— help to create the material conditions of social life that feminists, urban activists, and revolutionaries seek to transform.”—Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, author of Friction: An Ethnography of Global Connection The author is Professor at Bernard College in New York.

The Rhetorics of Sin The Rhetorics of Sin focuses on Jaime Cardinal Sin, the Archbishop of Manila, who figured prominently in the political life of the Philippines. His position as a Roman Catholic cardinal from 1976 to 2005 enabled him to influence Philippine social and political affairs. This book analyzes selected rhetorical discourses of Sin within the period 1972 to 1992. It describes the identifiable forces in configured interplay and the exigential flows of antecedents-events-consequences. Cardinal Sin’s rhetoric was created and shaped by these forces leading to a rhetorical role and persona he played within the historical configuration period.

Welgang Bayan This book seeks to answer complex questions regarding the often volatile relationship between management and labor in the Philippines by following the trade union movement from 1972 to 1984 as it braves the martial law years; celebrates May 1 milestones; metamorphoses into the BMP, TUCP, and KMU, among others; and struggles for both workers’ rights and rewards—from the tiny shops along Avenida Rizal to the export processing zones, from the batilyos’ indignation Mass in Navotas to the legendary strike at La Tondeña—and along the way, leaves lessons for all employees, employers, labor leaders, and legislators today.

Underground Spirits, Volumes I and II This two-volume sequel anthology to Upon Our Own Ground (2008) continues our people’s story—the same complex tapestry, as in the previous anthology, of how we Filipinos think and feel about our world and so, justify the way we live. Because of the ever-present danger of arrest and torture during the years of the Marcos dictatorship (1972 to 1986), the writers were driven to other forms or guises of the short story, such as fantasy and sci-fi, tale and parable. But whatever the form, you come away from the story with an image of a lifetime or a moment lived that the story’s words have evocatively forged; and that image sums up and makes into a whole the story’s meaningfulness by which its form has been achieved. That meaningfulness too is what raises the story to a universal plane, which is not the realm of eternal verities but rather, the site of everlasting questioning. Thus, illustratively, it would appear in a number of stories that the country’s true hero is the common tao for their underground spirit of endurance; the rebel, too, the NPA cadre, would be ennobled during those oppressive years of martial law by their struggle for a just and humane society.

Lost and Found and Other Essays In 2005, Rica Bolipata-Santos lost her father, suffered from her son’s worsening condition, and discovered salvation in writing. In 2007, she won the Madrigal-Gonzalez Best First Book Award for her first collection of essays. According to the judges, her “provocative and well-shaped essays” were “luminous, little narratives.” In Lost and Found, Bolipata-Santos continues traveling the terrain of the mundane and domestic, still unafraid to find gravitas in the tiniest of experiences. In these twenty-six articles she wrote from 2005–2009 for the Philippine Star, BolipataSantos trains her eye on everyday things, using words to transform the ordinary into something revelatory. The author teaches at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Sundays in Manila “Bob Boyer (Professor Emeritus at St. Norbert College in Wisconsin) offers affectionate—often intimate—portraits of Filipino life and culture, formed over many visits to a country that many, if not most, Americans know only in the broadest terms: as a staunch ally in the Pacific and its other wars, as the rack of Imelda’s shoes, and as the home of Manny Pacquiao. Bob sharpens that picture with factual detail, but also softens the resulting image of the Filipino with his sympathy and understanding. Whether he’s riding a jeepney, sipping iced tea at the Chocolate Kiss, exploring the mysteries of Quiapo, or marching up Bataan and Corregidor, Dr. Boyer invariably delights and inevitably instructs; sometimes—like all good teachers do, but ever so gently—Bob disturbs and critiques us with his observations.”—Jose Y.

Alter/(n)ations This book is an important contribution to the fields of visual and postcolonial cultural studies, this book offers a rich and multi-layered look at the art and life of an important Filipina artist. Relying neither on biography nor traditional chronology, the authors instead locate their subject within a series of shifting frames that situate and resituate the artist within the prismatic spaces of contemporary global culture.—Whitney Chadwick, author, Women, Art, and Society, Professor of Art History at San Francisco State University Flaudette May V.

El Folk-lore Filipino Isabelo de los Reyes, intent like the other propagandists on proving the Spanish colonizers wrong in their contention that there was no pre-Hispanic Philippine civilization to speak of, collected folkloric material from his native province of Ilocos Sur, Zambales, and Malabon. Thus one finds in this translation, information on Ilocano religion, mythology, psychology, types, customs, and traditions; selected poems of the author’s mother, poetess Leona Florentino; aspects of Zambales and Malabon folklore; and the story of Isio illustrating what Don Isabelo calls “administrative folklore.” His efforts were duly recognized, for El Folk-lore Filipino won a silver medal at the Madrid Exposition, and prizes at the Paris and St. Louis (United States of America) Expositions.

UP Diliman: Home and Campus The articles in this collection range from heartfelt reminiscences of daily encounters from the early days, to carefully crafted tales of youthful adventure and mischief, to personal accounts of historical campus events, and sentimental tributes to beloved community figures. All of these essays pieced together form a colorful tapestry of experiences that not only captures a pocket history of the University of the Philippines, but reflects the pioneering spirit and rich character of those who, literally, first broke ground in this campus and laid the foundations of what (long-time campus denizen) Narita Gonzalez sometimes refers to as a campus “communiversity.”—from the Preface Coeditor Gerardo Los Baños teaches at the UP Diliman.

The Sky Over Dimas A disturbing phone call in the dead of night launches young Rafael Torrecarion on a rescue mission in Negros Occidental. Returning to his hometown leads him deep into the tortured history of the Torrecarions, where lies a web of long-buried secrets, preserving and threatening the foundations of his family. “Groyon’s familiarity with the Bacolod matrix of manners— surreally rich scions, weird personalities, outrageously decadent lifestyles—has endowed him with the rich material to mine and/or undermine for his fiction. The Sky over Dimas reads exceedingly well, with its stylized construction serving the clear and illuminating prose as fine form perfectly following fluid function.”—Alfred A. Yuson, Palanca Hall of Fame Author Vince Groyon teaches at De La Salle University Bibliography of Filipino Novels 1901–2000 The most comprehensive bibliography of Filipino novels compiled so far, this book lists the novels in Tagalog (Filipino), Tagalog (Filipino) translation, and English published in the Philippines during the twentieth century. It provides essential bibliographical information for each novel, which taken collectively offers a record of the literary activity and production insofar as the genre is concerned during the period covered. This information could serve as a basic tool for further research and study on Philippine literary history, criticism, and bibliography, and as reference material for literary anthologies, textbooks, and other such efforts. Patricia May Jurilla teaches in UP Diliman.



Duguang Kamay sa Nilulumot na Pader This novel is based on the colonial situation of the Philippines. “Nakaugat ang Duguang Kamay sa Nilulumot na Pader sa kolonyal na kasaysayan ng bansa at sa mayamang alamat ng lahing Pilipino. Magpapatuloy ang paghihimagsik ng lahi ng Sol hanggang umiiral sa balintunang lipunan ang mga puwersa ng pang-aalipin at pagsasamantala hanggang makarating at makapamuhay ang masang sambayanan sa pinakamimithing Komunidad ng Liwanag— isang sosyedad na mapayapa, makatarungan, maunlad, demokratiko, at pinamamayanihan ng lantay na hustisya sosyal. Isang nobela itong tungkuling basahin ng sinumang makabayan upang higit na maunawaan ang puno’t dulo ng pagrerebelde ng mulat at progresibong mga sektor ng lipunan.”—Rogelio L. Ordoñez An Isteytsayd Life “Even when he was my student, I’d always appreciated Lorenzo ‘Third’ Paran for his quiet, pensive prose, and with this first book—a collection of blog entries about adjusting to life as an immigrant in America—(Paran) sustains my interest and admiration. It’s an experience that’s been told many times before by other writers, and indeed the continuing diaspora is the great Filipino story of our time. But Paran brings to it a wry and gentle humor, provoked by the condition of always being in the present and yet also always in transition. The author marvels at his inevitable transformation into a twentyfirst century American, but for those who fear that Paran may have lost his Pinoyness, read the book to see how and why the Pinoy endures, not by clinging to his old self, but by adapting, as Paran does, to the new.”—Jose Y. Dalisay Jr., UP Diliman

Dangerous Liaisons Dangerous Liaisons studies the narrative of the nation as inscribed in the novels written by Philippine women and published from 1993–2006. Given the traditional inscription of women in the discourse of nation, the study looks at how women are discursively deployed in the name of the nation and the nation-state. The study, thus, explores specific issues borne out of the interlocking masculinist discourses on the nation and on women/ women’s body/gender. In exploring these issues, the analysis of the novels shows that in gendering the nation as woman (i.e., in using the traditional masculinist womanas-nation trope), the novels critique the contradictions in the discourse of the Philippine nation. Ruth Pison teaches at UP Diliman.



Commend Contend / Beyond Extensions National Artist Edith L. Tiempo’s poems early provided illustrative examples of how verse can elevate itself into a convergence of Apollonian and Dionysian modes, layers, tiers of plenty. Cerebration began the quiet celebration in her works. It still does, but now both substance and technique issue from well beyond a lofty perch, ivory tower, cloud, maybe even Olympus. Here is philosophy as poetry, wisdom as poetry—with such wizened control over initial insights that are then ushered into a vizier’s pass of very thin air and the whitest light.—from the Introduction

The Urian Anthology 1990–1999 Like its two predecessors, this book gathers together the critical writings on Filipino Cinema by current and former members of the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino (MPP), this time in the decade of the 1990s. Editor Nicanor G. Tiongson teaches at UP Diliman.



Sarena’s Story “More stories like this should be written, and written this way—dramatic and sensitive renditions of history that take us to a Philippines most Filipinos know nothing about, but whose tribulations and triumphs continue to bear a profound impact on the nation—indeed, on our sense of a nation. Yabes presents a creative, often lyrical, narrative of life and love in a sultanate caught between past and future. Some readers might object to the fact that Yabes is not Muslim and should not have written this; but she draws on many years of sympathetic immersion in the Philippine south, in its politics and culture. The best test of this account is to read it and ask yourself if this cannot be any truer than this morning’s headline, which will tell you much less, and much less eloquently.”—Jose Y. Dalisay Jr. The author is an award-winning journalist and fictionist. Below the Crying Mountain “In Below the Crying Mountain the Moro rebellion that broke out in Sulu in the 1970s and that continues to wound the nation is seen vividly through the lives of the mestiza Rosy Wright, the Tausug girl Nahla, the rebel leader Prof. Hassan, the soldier Capt. Rodolfo as well as in the quest of the book’s narrator. The personal is political as war fuels the clash of emotions, histories, and cultures.”—Charlson Ong, Palanca Hall of Fame Author Criselda Yabes is an award-winning journalist and fictionist.

Ambagan 2009 The book contains articles that aim to discuss the important indigenous terms from various regions and how these terms contribute to the enrichment of the evolving Filipino language. Ang “ambagan” o “ambag” ay salitang nasa bokabularyo ng iba’t ibang wika sa Filipinas. Ang ambagan ay isang “kolektibong kontribusyon na pinagkakasunduan.” Sa Hiligaynon at Sebwano, ang ambag ay may kahulugang “pagsama-samahin.” Sa Pangasinan, ang ambag ay “kumilos nang sama-sama nang walang kabayaran.” Batay sa mga kahulugang ito, masasabing angkop na angkop ang pamagat ng proyekto sa layuning matukoy ang mahahalagang salita mula sa mga katutubong wika sa Filipinas na dapat mailahok sa wikang pambansa.

Poultry Production in the Tropics This book is all about raising chickens and other poultry species (duck, turkey, quail, pigeon, goose, and ostrich) for meat and eggs. It contains topics that dwell on the basic and practical aspects of poultry production, particularly those related to breeding and hatchery, feeds and feeding, and flock health management. The topics are written by experts from the UP Los Baños, with particular emphasis on production under tropical conditions. Angel Laylo Lambio teaches at the UP Los Baños.

Fruit and Plantation Crop Production in the Philippines This book covers two highly diverse groups of horticultural crops commercially grown in the Philippines, namely fruit and plantation crops. It provides basic information about the crops and presents the state of the art in growing them. It offers students in Agriculture a comprehensive textbook for the undergraduate course “Principles of Fruit and Plantation Crop Production,” which has long been taught at the UP Los Baños. Graduate students who need basic theoretical background in the subject will find the book a useful reference material. Professors, horticulturists, environmentalists, researchers, agricultural officers, development workers, and consultants should also find this book of great value to their endeavors. Leon O. Namuco and Calixto M. Protacio teach at the UP Los Baños. Balatik

The author collected and studied the astronomical (and meteorological) knowledge of the different Philippine ethnic groups to show the extent, depth, and richness of knowledge of these different groups on this subject. Sa aklat na ito, tinipon at pinag-aralan ng may-akda ang mga kaalamang astronomiko (at meteorolohiko) ng mga grupong etniko sa Pilipinas. Una, para ipakita ang lawak, lalim, at yaman ng kaalaman ukol dito ng iba’t ibang pangkat ng mga tao sa arkipelago. Ikalawa, para ugatin sa malayong nakaraan ang kaalamang ito na patuloy na nananatili at nagbabago hanggang sa kasalukuyan at nag-uugnay sa kabihasnang Pilipino sa kabihasnan ng mga kalapit-bayan. Ikatlo, para mapag-ugnay rin ang pangkalahatang kaalaman, lalo na ng mga edukado at urbanisadong Pilipino, sa kaalamang-bayan na karaniwang di nagiging bahagi ng pormal na edukasyon.

Frontier Constitutions “Research into the Philippine colonial past has taken a turn away from the strictly historiographic detailing of dates and events into cultural exploration and configuration in John Blanco’s Frontier Constitutions. The book explains the complex impact of Spanish hegemony on the consciousness of the native populace, using art works and literature as foundation of insights on the outcome of the processes our people underwent as Spain untangled contradictions arising from its diminishing imperial power in the nineteenth century with measures intended to prolong its hold on its territorial possessions away from the Peninsula.”—Bienvenido L. Lumbera, National Artist for Literature The author teaches at the University of California, San Diego The Asian Religious Sensibility and Christian (Carmelite) Spirituality, Volumes I and II While every book is the only one of its kind, we must say The Asian Religious Sensibility and Christian (Carmelite) Spirituality is a most unique attempt to articulate the felt psychological and spiritual needs and aspirations of Asians during this rapid cultural transition we are going through. Written in alternatingly vigorous, charming, profound, and even poetic prose, the writer explores, gropingly and tentatively, the Asian subconscious in the light of Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, and Moslem cultures. In varied ways, suitable to the literary forms she uses, the book renders itself invaluable for providing not only sharp, original, and perceptive insights, but also possible models for dialogues and exchanges.

Siglo This book is divided into ten chapters that are organized in such a way as to highlight the common themes and challenges during the various colorful episodes in the Philippine General Hospital’s history. From the time of the PGH’s inception up until the contemporary times, the path of modern medicine and health practices as well as the vibrant history of the medical center would intertwine and forge an infinite bond with the principal aim of safeguarding the people’s health and lives. Indeed, the hospital has remained steadfast in its commitment to the Filipino people to deliver effective health services, undertake relevant researches, continue valuable training programs, and strengthen its own governance as well. Definitely, the people’s hospital has its own narrative to tell and share with the entire Filipino nation. The Other View, Volumes I and II “The columns are superior specimens of opinion journalism, the language urbane but always lucid. The learned references are always apropos and certain to be appreciated by city dwellers but perhaps out of reach of non-humanities majors. The views are unmistakably Left but they are so worded so lightly as to be acceptable to literate middle-class readers.”—Bienvenido Lumbera, National Artist for Literature Elmer Ordoñez taught at the UP Diliman.

The Forest While writing a book on the Hukbalahap, a wartime antiJapanese resistance movement in the Philippines, William “Bill” Pomeroy met and fell in love with Celia Mariano, one of its most active women members. They were wedded twice—by a justice of the peace and by the movement to which they belonged. The Forest tells the story of the two years—1950–1952—Bill and Celia spent in the mountains with the Huks. But more than a vivid account of the physical hardship of guerrilla life, the book is a moving story of their love and their courage in the fight for freedom.

The Muslim South and Beyond This book is a collection of selected essays of Samuel K. Tan written through the years during his life and times as chairman and member of the University of the Philippines (UP) Faculty of History. The essays are conveniently arranged from general to specific issues of the Mindanao conflict and the central relevance of the Muslim South to the problem. Because of its global ideological character, the first essay gives context to the Bangsamoro struggle which had received initial and substantial support from Libyan President Muammar Ghadafi as author of The Green Book which expounds the “Third International Theory.”

The Americanization of Manila 1898–1921 This book makes use of the historical descriptive method to describe the origins and evolution of the Americanization process in Manila in the first two decades of American rule. It seeks to describe the transformation of the city in the light of the American colonial objectives. It focuses on the sociopolitical dynamics of administrative policy on three important components of American social modernization program: city planning and infrastructure, health and sanitation, and education. The book adopts an entirely different framework by examining colonization from the perspective of crosscultural relations. It espouses an interdisciplinary approach and uses indigenous social science concepts as integrating mechanism. Cristina Evangelista Torres taught at the UP Manila.

Bird Lands, River Nights and Other Melancholies “Jose Marte A. Abueg’s poetic utterance—as ‘daylight’s whisper’ and ‘pearled midnights’—assumes lyrical gravitas while beholding cages and suicides. Yet, there is no despairing in these laments, for the cited, repeated treasures of spirit lead to a reckoning of wisdom. Iridescent images open paths to insights, and from genesis to incense there is but the word as verb—’epiphany’-ing the ‘me’ or cosmic I. There too is the extended, experimental, experiential verse collage for the self-strung namesake, which turns into a nearly epicurean tribute to the sadness of literature. From the loss that ‘keeps you company’ to the big picture of cerebral flight, the poet splits mysteries like bamboo, to ignite eyes.”— Alfred A. Yuson, Palanca Hall of Fame The author is a Palanca and Philippines Free Press awardee for poetry. Balisa Three plays that are interrelated and considered as cornerstone in the three decades of contemporary history are contained in this trilogy: Martial Law, EDSA I and EDSA II. All of them won literary awards. Isang nobela ang trilohiyang ito kung pagmamasdan sa saklaw at pagkakawing-kawing ng mga pangyayaring nakapaloob rito: Satirika, Ligalig, at Balighô. Tinalakay dito ang middle class at ang kanilang pangarap, takot at agam-agam, pakikisangkot, pagmamaneobra at pakikikutsaba, mga lihim at pagnanasa, sala-salabat na relasyon, at pananaw sa mga pangyayaring lumikha sa kanila na pilit nilang binabago o pinananatili.

Favorite Arcellana Stories This is a selection of some twenty-nine Arcellana short stories written and published over a period of nearly four decades. Many of these stories have seen several reprints in various anthologies and literature textbooks for Philippine schools, as well as translations from the original English into German, Italian, Russian, Korean (besides Tagalog) and published in their respective countries. The original manuscripts/typescripts have succumbed through the years to typhoons, floods, house movings, and even a Tondo fire. Happily, however, enough published material survived to perpetuate the memory of Francisco Arcellana as one of the best-loved and admired titans of Philippine letters. This collection was edited by the National Artist’s widow, Emerenciana Yuviengco Arcellana. Lola Coqueta “Lola Coqueta is a lively, moving collection that stamps Isabela Banzon as a poet to be noticed, and not just in her home country.”—Dennis Haskell, The University of Western Australia “Direct rhythms, a wry yet loyal approach to experience and memory, oblique without evasion, and animated by the desire to free ‘the frog in the dry grass’ of her throat, all combine to give a special kind of pleasure to meeting the poet and her many selves in Lola Coqueta.”—Rajeev Patke, National University of Singapore Isabela Banzon teaches at UP Diliman.

Huwaran/Hulmahan Atbp. Johven Velasco (1948–2007) left behind a draft for a book and a circle of colleagues and students who revered him for his unusual combination of talent and compassion. Although the current volume is, strictly speaking, a work in progress, Velasco managed to maintain a balance between clear thinking and a rigorous grounding in theory. Films from diverse periods and genres, along with the star personas of a number of luminaries, get a muchdeserved and long-overdue critical treatment that only a fan specialist with Velasco’s visionary approach could provide. The author taught at the UP College of Mass Communication in Diliman.



AVES Jerry Gracio’s second collection of poetry that won him the University of the Philippines Centennial Literary Prize in 2008. Taglay ng mga berso ni Gracio ang kapangyarihan ng mga naratibong pumupugad sa puso ng ating karanasan bilang mga mortal. Sa ikalawang aklat ni Gracio makakaasa tayo ng mga panibagong pagdulog sa mga mito at salaysay na muling tutuka, huhuni, at mananaghoy kasabay ng dahan-dahang paglagas ng mga balahibo katulad ng kay Icarus o ang muling pagpapaimbulog ng wakwak sa karimlan, upang hanapin tayong mga nagpupuri at nagaabang na mambabasa, na sa pagtatapos ng bawat tula ay tila mga birhen tayong binisita ng anghel na naghatid ng ebanghelyo ng ating pagbubuntis sa nakakabaog na panahon. Looking for the Philippines In this, her latest book, Cristina Pantoja Hidalgo, prizewinning fictionist and scholar, revisits the cities she first encountered much earlier in her life. Part travel writing and part memoir, these essays combine observation and reminiscence, with insights drawn from her readings and her conversations with people for whom these cities are home. Hidalgo, whose travel essays first appeared in Manila periodicals in 1980, and now has published seven collections of such pieces, says of this book: “Perhaps I write about places as a way of making sense of the spaces I occupy now, these islands, which are and are not one country.” The author is Director of the University of Sto. Tomas Writing Center. XXth Century These two plays dissect the violence inflicted on Filipinos by Filipinos. Country in Search of a Hero is a full-length satirical play on the three mortal sins of the Martial Law Regime: the torture and killing of student activists, the Manila Film Center cover-up, and the theft of the Golden Buddha, symbol of greed for the Yamashita Gold. On the other hand, A Significant Life, a full-length dramatic play, exposes how a revolution devours its own children. The questions remain: Will the revolutionary of the 20th century become a lost specie? Will he evolve into the terrorist of the 21st century?



The Life and Works of Marcelo Adonay Marcelo Adonay (1848–1928) was a major Philippine composer and church musician whose long and fruitful career stretched from the 1870s to the 1920s. As maestro de capilla of the San Agustin church in Intramuros, Manila, he presided over the musical establishment of the powerful Augustinian Order that required the performance of elaborate instrumental and choral works. The first of two volumes, this pioneering work includes five major essays on Adonay’s life, his milieu, an inventory of his extant and missing works, and musical and formal analyses of his magnum opus, Pequeña Misa Solemne sobre Motivos de la Missa Regia de Canto Gregoriano. Elena Rivera Mirano is Dean of the UP College of Arts and Letters Regarding Franz “Regarding Franz gathers memories and recollections of family, friends, protégés, and colleagues of Francisco Arcellana, National Artist for Literature. These are personal glimpses of the man who touched lives through his writing, his teaching, his being. Several of the pieces here previously appeared in printed and on-line media shortly after Franz passed away in August 2002. A few are transcriptions of spoken tributes and commemorations given at the funeral services. The others are new, written for this collection, giving voice at last to feelings long felt. Every one a story only the author could have written regarding Franz.”—Mayi Arcellana-Panlilio (Francisco Arcellana’s daughter)

The Long Lost Startle “There is generosity and wisdom in these poems, a sense of wonder that elevates the most ordinary of things and bestows upon them a special place in the world. Informed by both intelligence and compassion, Joel M. Toledo’s The Long Lost Startle, I believe, will be considered a major work in Philippine poetry; while the angel of history sees the future by turning his back on the wreckage of the world, Toledo fixes his gaze with attention and astonishment, and in the process heralds a future with some of the most memorable poems our country has ever produced.”—Eric Gamalinda, Philippine Centennial Literary Prize winner Joel Toledo is a Palanca Grand Prize winner for poetry.



A Satire of Two Nations This book utilizes visual satire as a primary tool for discourse analysis, charting the shifting dimensions of Philippines-Japan relations as depicted in Philippine editorial cartoons from 1986 to 1998. The rationale for utilizing editorial cartoons in this study is that visual satires present implicit rather than explicit statements. Editorial cartoons, therefore, become effective media for criticism where the written language, being more transparent, has failed. The book weaves an exciting narrative of Philippines-Japan relations, revealing the sociohistorical forces at play that affected the dynamics of this relationship. The Filipino’s constructed images of the Japanese are also teased out by examining changes in cartooning conventions and editorial policies. Helen Yu-Rivera teaches at UP Diliman.

Globalization and Becoming-Nation This book is an intervention into contemporary debates about nationalism and postcoloniality, this work attempts to locate the role of literary studies and the humanities in the age of globalization. Through the book’s analysis, subject and collective become sites in which multiple flows and forces interact and conflict, processes that are made legible in texts. Two acclaimed Filipino novels in English, Jessica Hagedorn’s Dogeaters and Charlson Ong’s An Embarrassment of Riches, are read as markers in the passage from the despotic national sovereignty of Martial Law to the flexible capitalist sovereignty of post-EDSA. Elmo Gonzaga teaches at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Pook at Paninindigan This book is a critical study of the Pantayong Pananaw, a social concept which was very popular in the University of the Philippines in the 1980s. Ang akdang ito ay isa sa mga pinakakumprehensibong kritikal na pagsusuri sa kaisipang tinatawag na Pantayong Pananaw na unang sistematikong binalangkas ni Zeus A. Salazar at ng iba pang mga historyador sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas na naging laganap noong mga dekada ‘80. Ang kasalukuyang akda ay nagsisikap na matugunan ang hamon na inihaharap ng Pantayong Pananaw sa pagpapakahulugan, pag-unawa, at pagpapahalaga sa pag-iral at praktika ng mga kilusang radikal at anakpawis sa Pilipinas. Si Ramon Guillermo ay nagtuturo sa UP Diliman. Unplugging the Constitution In this collection of articles and essays, the author confronts a wide range of issues—constitutional theory, adjudication, legal hermeneutics, the bar exams, marriage, psychological incapacity, free speech, presidential immunity, liberalism, church and state—and takes a nonconventional and, at times, critical view of standard legal discourse and prevailing social institutions. The author approaches his subjects from an interdisciplinary perspective, articulating his positions with insights from history, economics, linguistics, and philosophy. The result is a set of views that creates novel platforms for conversation and serves as a counter-push from the pull of the mainstream. Florin Hilbay is currently Solicitor General of the Philippines.

UP in the Time of People Power A sequel to an earlier volume, University of the Philippines: The First 75 Years (1908–1983), this book covers the period from the closing years of Martial Law to the spirited days of People Power under the leadership of UP presidents Edgardo J. Angara, Jose B. Abueva, Emil Q. Javier, and Francisco Nemenzo Jr. For these presidents, it was a momentous period for self-examination, innovation, and renewal in all spheres of academic life and national engagement. The book chronicles the events in UP’s transformation as it emerged from the dynamism of people power resurgent and renewed, recapturing the soul of its academic leadership and sense of national purpose, and becoming the national university as a fitting tribute to its 100 years of existence. Editor Ferdinand Llanes teaches at UP Diliman. Kalusugang Pampubliko sa Kolonyal na Maynila (1898–1918) An attempt by Rolando Mactal, a Filipino historian, to integrate the three disciplines of geography, medicine, and history in the study and criticism of the Philippine state of health during the American regime. Masasabing ang librong ito ang isa sa kauna-unahang pagtatangka ng isang Pilipinong historyador na tumuhog sa tatlong disiplina ng heograpiya, medisina, at kasaysayan sa pagtalakay ng isang nakapakakomplikadong temang pangkasaysayan: ang kalusugan sa panahon ng pananakop ng mga Amerikano sa bansa. Kritikal na binusisi at sinuri sa akda ang paghubog ng mga patakaran at programang pangkalusugan ng pamahalaang kolonyal sa siyudad ng Maynila mula 1898 hanggang 1918, kabilang ang impluwensiya ng kapaligiran dito. Bilanggo Bilanggo is the diary of a decade behind bars. William Pomeroy and his Filipina wife Celia Mariano, like hundreds of other communists and militants, were sent to prison in the early 1950s for participating in the Huk guerrilla struggle for national liberation. Pomeroy’s personal narrative of the armed struggle, The Forest, has become a classic, published in various English editions and translated into several languages. Bilanggo is its sequel, written with the same immediacy and power. It describes how the political prisoners endured stretches of solitary confinement, were denied basic amenities, and witnessed horrific outbursts of violence between warring prison gangs. But above all it depicts how they refused to be broken, or to give up their vision and ideals.

Women’s Common Destiny In this first ever book-length study of maternal representations in Cebuano literature, Hope Sabanpan-Yu reveals the confluence of indigenous and foreign cultures and convincingly connects the theory of split-level maternity to the debate on motherhood in the Philippines. As women’s participation in social and economic affairs grew, Yu argues, so too did the social significance of their maternal relations. Focusing specifically on serialized Cebuano novels by women, Yu traces the history of motherhood and examines the maternal stereotypes including the important roles played by patriarchal and societal structures. The author is Director of the University of San Carlos Cebuano Studies Center.
