Ileto’s classic book on revolutionary movements in the Philippines was published in 1979 and it is now into its 8th printing. Although it was first published 33 years ago, the continued appeal of the book lies in its original approach to popular resistance movements in the Philippines.

such a brilliant way of magnifying the voices of the marginalized people through prayers and other undocumented evidences.

A new lens of looking at how our revolution started. Not the usual Revolution led by the Elite Propagandists but how the likes of Hermano Pule and the different uprisings started. By using the known "text"- bastardized version of pasyon and how the masses got hold of their own situation.
A must read for us Filipinos who want to understand our rich tradition and question how victors wrote our history. :)

medyo masakit nga lang sa bangs lalim ng "Filipino" pero sapat lang. It has something todo with Kaluluwa and ginhawa plus kaliwanagan and kalayaan. XDDD
sino kaya sa ating mga bagong halal na pulitiko ang "pure loob"? hmmm...
