U.P. into the 21st Century and Other Essays

Francisco Nemenzo

Winner, National Book Award, Essay, 2000

“This collection of U. P. President Nemenzo’s essays and speeches spans the last two decades or so, a tumultuous period in which Dodong—the educator, political scientist, social critic, and activist—took part. His love of country is equaled only by his commitment to education and his deep-seated belief in the Filipino youth and their ability to make of this country what their elders have either refused or failed to do.”—Maria Serena I. Diokno, U. P. vice president for Academic Affairs, in the introduction

Unconstitutional Essays

Pacipico A. Agabin

Winner, National Book Award, Law, 1997

The common thread that binds most of the essays here is the unholy connection between law and politics. Unlike love and marriage, politics and law cannot really exist apart from each other, or so the essays in this book imply, and thus it is an attempt to belie the popular notion that “political law” is a contradiction in terms considering that politics cannot be law, and vice-versa.According to the author, all law, especially constitutional law, is political.

Under the Crescent Moon: Rebellion in Mindanao

Marites Dañguilan Vitug, Glenda M. Gloria

Winner, National Book Award, Journalism, 2000

This book is an exhaustively researched, evenhanded, and briskly written report on the Mindanao that most Filipinos read about everyday but have never really known. It holds great value for scholars and pedestrians alike: a sifted mass of detail that often reads like a political thriller.

Utos ng Hari at Iba pang Kuwento

Jun Cruz Reyes

Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 1981

Also published by University of the Philippines Press in 2002 with ISBN 971-542-360-4

“The dignification of the so-called ‘language of the streetcorner’ in literature is an achievement of the literary movement of the 1970s which concerned itself with giving voice to the grievances and protest of the Filipino masses…. His employment of colloquial Pilipino that borders on slang is not simply an experiment with language. It is also an expression of the author’s political commitment and his effective stylistic for understatement and restraint.”— Bienvenido Lumbera
