Talking History: Conversations with Teodoro A. Agoncillo
Talking History: Conversations with Teodoro A. Agoncillo by Ambeth R. Ocampo gathers the transcripts of three conversations between Agoncillo and Ocampo in 1984, as well as an earlier interview of Agoncillo by F. Sionil Jose in 1976. As the pre-eminent historian of the Philippines, Agoncillo (1912-1985) has written over twenty books on Philippine history, including History of the Filipino People, which is considered as the best college reference on the subject. In these conversations with Ocampo, then a student of history, Agoncillo "narrates various aspects of his life in his trademark no-nonsense manner"... providing a crash course in Philippine historiography and "a means to re-evaluate the life, times, and legacy of Agoncillo."
