This was the textbook that we used in our mandatory Philippine History course in university. I don't know where my copy is now (I need to look for it in some forgotten box somewhere), but I remember how informative this book was, and not in a boring way.

History of the Filipino People, is the best history book I've ever read.

HEKASI, Kasaysayan, Social Studies - mga naging paboritong subject ko nung araw. Memorization lang kasi e so di kailangan ng sobrang pag-intindi. Dates lang kung kelan namatay si ganito, piniramahan ang isang kasulatang ganire, ilang barko ang natira sa expedisyon ni Magellan, ilan ang naging girlfriend ni Rizal bago naging sila ni Josephine Bracken, saan pinunit ang sedula etc. Pag kasaysayan, memo

Required reading for my History class back in college. I used to despise reading this because it felt like a chore, knowing that I need to remember details for the exams. I want to read it again and enjoy it this time.

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.
