Patterns of Continuity and Change
In this book, Helen Yu-Rivera uses editorial cartoons to prove that pictorial documents are potentially as rich in information as written documents in delineating the course of Philippines-Japan relations. The book highlights the perspective of the popular press instead of the commonly solicited viewpoints of policy makers. More important, she reads the editorial cartoons as symbolic language where images and text reveal more than what they signify at a cursory glance.
