My copy of this book has turned brown with age on my shelf. I consider it a constant tutor in the history of my country. It ends with the start of the Marcos era (the 70s) but its sweeping view of the past 350 years under Spanish and US colonial rule is always informative and encourages the reader to dig up the more interesting, sometimes painful, details.

Teodoro A. Agoncillo (November 9, 1912 – January 14, 1985) was one of the pre-eminent Filipino historians of the 20th century. He and his contemporary Renato Constantino were among the first Filipino historians who earned renown for promoting a distinctly nationalist point of view of Filipino history (nationalist historiography). He was also an essayist and a poet.
