Winner, National Book Award, Cookbooks and Food, 2006

Taong 1985 nang inilathala ng Pambansang Sanggunian ng Pananaliksik ng Pilipinas ang unang labas ng seryeng Breakthrough na nakapokus sa gamit ng halaman-dagat. Naglalaman ito ng pangalan at larawan ng mga piling halaman-dagat at iba’t ibang putaheng mailuluto gamit nito bilang aditibo. Nararapat lamang na ilathalang muli ang bagong bersyon ng Gulay-Dagat bilang suporta sa kampanya ng pamahalaan na makatulong, makahanap, at makapagbigay ng masustansiyang pagkain sa hapag-kainan ng bawat pamilyang Filipino.

Gagamba sa Uhay: Kalipunan ng mga Haiku

Rogelio Mangahas

Winner, National Book Award, Best Book of Poems, 2007

Translated in English by Marne L. Kilates

“Minimalist yet mesmerizing, indeed, is this bilingual collection of over 270 haiku in Filipino by Rogelio G. Mangahas with translations into English by Marne L. Kilates. That a superb Tagalog poet would appropriate a foreign form and make much of it with requisite brevity—thence have his jewels re-rendered in another foreign language—is in itself a marvel of transposition and juxtaposition. That the translation bespeaks, as it were, belief rather than betrayal makes this tripartite coalition a triumph of poetic globalization.”—Alfred A. Yuson

Jimmy Belita, CM

Winner, National Book Award, Theology and Religion, 2006

God Was not in the Wind is a modest contribution to a scanty pool of biology-based theological reflections on popular religion in the Philippines. Traditionally, theology uses philosophy as its framework in seeking understanding for the given faith, and recently theology has turned to the social sicences for the same purpose. In this work the biological theory of evolution is the model. The dynamics of popular religion expressed in religious and moral practices is interpreted according to evolutionary principles.

Gongs and Bamboo: A Panorama of Philippine Musical Instruments

Jose Maceda

Winner, National Book Award, Music, 1998

This panorama of music instruments starts with older bamboo and other instruments of undetermined age, going on to two types of gongs—flat in Northern Luzon and bossed in the South. These two areas may be viewed as pocket cultures comparable to other pockets in Borneo, Sumatra, other islands in Southeast Asia, and the mountain regions south of, and including, Yunnan province of China, thus placing the music of Luzon and Mindanao in a larger geographical context.
