Nation, Self, and Citizenship: An Invitation to Philippine Sociology

Randolf S. David

Winner, National Book Award, Social Science, 2002

“The discourse of nationhood and social responsibility pervades almost every area of Philippine social science. The Filipino nation is unfinished business, and therefore it is understandable that in public discourse the nation’s needs take moral precedence over individual fulfillment. Thus, the book takes up the troubled quest of the modern Filipino for autonomy and meaning in the bosom of his own society, a young nation that is itself aspiring to grow into a full modern nationhood in a globalized and, some say, postmodern era.”

Clodualdo Del Mundo Jr.

Winner, National Book Award, Film Criticism, 1998

Necessary Fictions: Philippine Literature and the Nation, 1946-1980

Caroline S. Hau

Winner, National Book Award, Film Criticism, 2000

The book examines the connection between Philippine literature and nationalist discourse during the postwar period. Through close readings of the works of a number of writers, it argues that the long-standing affinity between Philippine literature and nationalism is based, in part, on the power of literature to formulate and work through a set of questions central to nationalist debates on the possibility and necessity of social change. It asks: What is the relationship between knowledge and action? Between the personal and political? Between the foreign and Filipino? Between culture and history, culture and politics, culture and economics?

Translated by Virgilio S. Almario

Ang Noli Me Tángere, una sa dalawang kilalang nobela ni Jose Rizal, ay nagbigay ng mahalagang komentaryo na nananatiling makabuluhan hanggang ngayon.

Nudes: Poems

Ricardo De Ungria

Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1994

Nudes deals with forms of attention and loss, affliction and closures, in love. In 38 poems that exhibit his mastery of formal and colloquial measures, de Ungria lays bare an unprecedented range of tonality and complexity as he explores the obsessions and contradictions in the discourse of desire and achieves a delicate balance between toughness and tenderness, presence and shadow, argument and sleep, will and silence.
