Japanese Pioneers in the Northern Philippine Highlands:

Edited by Patricia Okubo Afable

Winner, National Book Award, History, 2004

This book describes a vibrant Japanese community that was fully engaged in northern Luzon economic, cultural, and civic life in the first decades of the 20th century. Because of the great toll on Filipino life and society in the Second World War, most of the stories here came to be shared only within small groups of Japanese-Filipinos. Few of their elders, the pioneers’ children, now remain. Through oral accounts, archival research, and over 300 previously unpublished line drawings and photographs, this volume retrieves for us a portion of Baguio and Cordillera history that has come close to being totally forgotten.

Journey to Majayjay

Paul De la Gironiere

Winner, National Book Award, Translation, 1982

Translated by E. Aguilar Cruz

Originally published in the city of Nantes in 1862, Journey to Majayjay is the least known of Gironiere’s literary legacies. Says National Historical Institute chair Serafin D. Quiason in the foreword, “but nothing detracts from its value as a historical source in spite of its brevity.”

Juan Tamban

Malou Leviste Jacob

Edited by Apolonio Bayani Chua

Winner, National Book Award, Drama, 1984

“Juan Tamban is an intelligent play that is able to relate a boy’s life with what is going on in contemporary Philippine society. It portrays quite unequivocably the shallowness of middle- and upper-class social involvement, the futility of ritualistic conventions that are applied to the issues of poverty and child welfare, of the often exhorbitant loss of justice, the price of competent lawyers which the poor cannot afford even if their very lives are at stake.” —Pablo Tariman, Sunday Times Journal
