Stated in this wise by Jose V. Abueva, the Editor of this volume and of the Anthology, of which this volume is the opener, this means an oblation to the thoughtful reader of a rich and varied mix of ideas, approaches, perspectives, persona of writers, and interpretation. The work shares with history its predilection for the unique and the singular for what is different and unrepeatable historical fact. It does not, in format, look or read like most historical works, disjointed as it deceptively appears. It results nonetheless in becoming a work of history, the work of historians in many cases, through felicitously not so in all cases. The book shares with history, as written record, much of what goes into the making of history...Premises in this Foreword considered, and this anthology demonstrating the capability and the quality of their articulation of Filipino socio-political thought; in light moreover of the further research overall that must needs be done in order to fill gaps and answer important questions in Philippine historiography, the bottom line is clear. The Filipino is worth writing for."
