About the book:
These articles interrogate diverse issues in Philippine cultural history: the place of Nick Joaquin in the nation’s historiography; the debate on the class position of Andres Bonifacio and the revolutionary outbreak of 1896; Filipino-Spanish interactions in the world of print; the social history of religious devotions; the state of regional literary studies and the case of Filipino crime fiction; and Philippine electoral politics as seen in the cracked mirror of Pascual Racuyal’s career. The book ends with the author’s reflections on the past four decades of Philippine cultural studies.
