  • Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: Hegemony necessitates building consent among the ruled through noncoercive means, with rulers deploying seemingly benign institutions to help perpetuate the status quo and convince the ruled to accept existing inequalities. However, the instrumentalization of education in the service of power is never straightforward. By poring over fifteen history textbooks used in Philippine secondary schools from 1905 to 2000 and employing qualitative content analysis, Rommel Curaming shows that government-approved instructional materials convey an inconsistent articulation of Philippine nationalism. Amid the state's various iterations in the twentieth century, these textbooks reflect the plurality of social forces that compete ... Read More

  • Hegemonic Tool': Nationalism in Philippine history textbooks,
           1900–2000
    • Abstract: Modern states formulate and implement programmatic nation-building projects (Deutsch and Foltz 2010), in which school systems act as the main mechanism for knowledge transfer as well as for promoting values deemed favorable for creating a cohesive nation (Green 1997). Textbooks play a central role in this process, particularly those used in teaching history, civics, and moral education (Zajda 2015; Zajda et al. 2009). As Philip Altbach (1991, 256) has observed, "Textbooks are without question an element in the struggle for cultural and educational independence for many countries, both in the Third World and in smaller industrialized nations." Despite the availability of an expanding array of instructional ... Read More

  • Bonifacio and the Katipunan in the cuerpo de vigilancia archival
           collection
    • Abstract: Andrés Bonifacio and the Katipunan became a controversial subject of postwar historical discourse despite the dearth of primary sources on which historians and researchers could base their narratives. The topic stole the limelight in the 1960s after Teodoro Agoncillo (1956/2001) published his award-winning biography of Bonifacio. Research interest continued in the succeeding decades, with the Filipino uprising against Spain from 1896 to 1898 figuring prominently in Agoncillo's classic textbook on Philippine history. The 1998 centennial of the proclamation of Philippine independence also contributed to the enrichment of the historical literature dealing with Bonifacio and the Katipunan, given the numerous ...

  • Authorizing Illicit Intimacies: Filipina–gi Interracial Relations in
           the Postwar Philippines
    • Abstract: As the Second World War came to a close in the Philippines, the sight of Filipinas riding in jeeps with American GIs caused quite a stir.1 In a letter to the United States Army regarding the issue of prostitution in Manila, a concerned civilian named Teodoro K. Molo (1945) insisted that something be done about "the female species" riding in jeeps.2 Molo (ibid.) believed that Filipinas had found "loopholes" to "enjoy their dirty elicit business" by using military vehicles and urged the US Army to ban the practice. During this time, the "jeep girl" had become a controversial figure in local newspapers and magazines as well.3 She was associated with the phrase "one kiss, one canned good" (isang halik, isang de lata) ...

  • In Pursuit of Progress: Narratives of Development on a Philippine Island
           by Hannah C. M. Bulloch (review)
    • Abstract: Development is customarily depicted and endorsed as an antidote to backwardness, irrationality, and impoverishment. From election campaign speeches and policy debates to community projects and product endorsements, the proclivity to portray development as an indicator of advancement and hence of something to be desired and pursued remains strong. In social science research, literature inquiring into the many forms and aspects of development, though critical at times, have likewise maintained a favorable rhetoric. Left largely unexplored are local understandings of development and how these understandings reproduce, interrogate, and challenge established interpretations of progress and modernity. By the same token ... Read More

  • Writer in Exile/Writer in Revolt: Critical Perspectives on Carlos Bulosan
           ed. by Jeffrey Arellano Cabusao (review)
    • Abstract: "Occupation: Writer … Estate: One typewriter, a twenty-year old [sic] suit, worn out socks; Finances: Zero; Beneficiary: His people" (xix). Thus read Carlos Bulosan's obituary, which was published in the Daily People's World in 1956. Penned by his friend and fellow unionist Chris Mensalvas, the tribute is a brief but poignant summation of Bulosan's contribution not just to Philippine literature but also to social movements both in the US and the Philippines. However, although Bulosan's place in literature and history is beyond dispute, interpreting his work (and his life) has been a site of contestation for the past sixty years. Early literary criticism of Bulosan's writings was dominated by formalist readings ... Read More

  • Hidden Lives, Concealed Narratives: A History of Leprosy in the
           Philippines ed. by Maria Serena I. Diokno (review)
    • Abstract: Leprosy, or Hansen's disease, has attracted scholarly inquiry for a number of right reasons. For one, scholars can examine the ways by which societies and regimes of power have made sense of a disease that has caused mass suffering in different places at different times. While it is now known that the microbe Mycobacterium leprae causes leprosy, the disease's longevity had allowed it to gain various cultural meanings in the past, ranging from its Judeo-Christian association with impurity and sin to miasmatic interpretations to its association with lewd behavior and lack of hygiene—notions that are general knowledge in the literature. In the Philippines the history of leprosy has inspired scholarship, from Enrico ... Read More

  • Palawan and Its Global Connections eds. by James F. Eder and Oscar L.
           Evangelista (review)
    • Abstract: Palawan and Its Global Connections, edited by James F. Eder and Oscar L. Evangelista, describes Palawan as the "land of the promise" blessed with "beauty and abundance" (2). The volume is a collection of papers written by academics and development practitioners that situate, explore, and analyze Palawan's rich cultural and natural treasures through the lens of competing dualities and power struggles manifested through state-society relations, cultural evolution and identify formation, and resource conservation and exploitation. The book, which is divided into three parts, provides in-depth discussion and analysis of these themes.The first part highlights the evolution and (mal)development of the province of Palawan ...

  • RE: Recollections, Reviews, Reflections by Luis H. Francia (review)
    • Abstract: Multi-genre writer Luis H. Francia understands that compiling already-published works into a book may seem selfish. He had published an earlier collection, Memories of Overdevelopment (Anvil, 1998), which contained two decades' worth of work. However, the reason he does it again is that he also understands its aesthetic value. RE allows readers who have followed Francia's essays in various local and foreign as well as print and online publications throughout the years to "follow the arc of [his] writing" (ix). Even for these accustomed readers, but more so for new readers, that arc is surprising in its range and insight. Although the book conveniently and alliteratively classifies its contents into recollections ... Read More

  • Digital Cinema in the Philippines, 1999–2009 by Eloisa May P.
           Hernandez (review)
    • Abstract: Eloisa May P. Hernandez's Digital Cinema in the Philippines, 1999–2009 argues time and again for Philippine cinema's continued life, albeit already in the contemporary era's most transformative and indeed progressive form—the digital medium. Most critics and scholars decry the unending lackluster production of Philippine cinema in general, which logically has led to pronouncements of its death over the years. For Clodualdo del Mundo Jr., for instance, it seems to die over and over again in film scholarship. Hernandez, however, turns to the ever-altering digital medium to trace how it has provided Philippine cinema a new lease on life by radically transforming film production, distribution, and consumption from 1999 ...

  • Pan-Asian Sports and the Emergence of Modern Asia, 1913–1974 by
           Stefan Huebner (review)
    • Abstract: Stefan Huebner received his PhD degree from Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany, and specializes in the history of colonialism, modernization, and development policy. In July 2016 he started a Research Fellowship at the National University of Singapore's Asia Research Institute, where he is based today. Pan-Asian Sports and the Emergence of Modern Asia heavily employs his earlier journal publications, such as his article on the sportive "civilizing mission" of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in the Philippines.Traditionally the academic field of sports history has been centered on Europe and North America. Although some important works exist outside of these regions, most studies trace the ... Read More

  • Moral Politics in the Philippines: Inequality, Democracy, and the Urban
           Poor by Wataru Kusaka (review)
    • Abstract: Moral Politics in the Philippines: Inequality, Democracy, and the Urban Poor has been a long-anticipated book since its Japanese version came out in 2013. Its author, Wataru Kusaka, obtained his postgraduate degree at the Graduate School of Social and Cultural Studies, Kyushu University, but his first exposure to the Philippines was doing volunteer work in Leyte as an undergraduate student. He also attended graduate classes at the University of the Philippines-Diliman (266). But above all, it was his engagement with the people in the slums of Barangay Old Capitol Site, Quezon City, where he found his passion and formed his insights about the Philippines.Kusaka's work provides a theoretical proposition for rejecting ...

  • Dean Worcester's Fantasy Islands: Photography, Film, and the Colonial
           Philippines by Mark Rice (review)
    • Abstract: Before Dean Worcester's Fantasy Islands was published, the only book-length study of American colonial photographs of the Philippines was Benito Vergara Jr.'s Displaying Filipinos: Photography and Colonialism in Early 20th-Century Philippines (University of the Philippines Press, 1995). Vergara showed how the country was "visually possessed" by means of travel pictures and made to represent the colonial narrative of progress through the use of before-and-after images in official photography of the state. While Displaying Filipinos tackled official and travel photography of the early years of American rule, Dean Worcester's Fantasy Islands focuses on a huge photographic collection of one of the most important ...
