Pasyon and Revolution
Written during the early years of Martial Law in the Philippines, Reynaldo C. Ileto's highly influential book is "an attempt to write history 'from below'." It offers an alternative history of the social movements during the late 18th to early 19th century in the Philippines based on the perspective of the masses themselves. Central to his analysis is the 'pasyon', the story of Christ's life, death and resurrection, which "provides the cultural framework of movements for change."
