About the book:
This book traces origins of public opinion in the Philippines. How do people there know and discuss their society? By opening up and situating vernacular school texts, newspapers, the nationalist debate and contemporary fiction, the characteristic public discourse becomes both visible and intelligible. At the same time, this work pinpoints ideas Filipinos hold about their history, politics and nation. Altogether, this volume is an indispensable source for understanding the ideas animating Philippine civil society.
