About the book:
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– help to create the material conditions of social life that feminists, urban activists and revolutionaries seek to transform.
