Taming People's Power

Regular price ₱460.00

In this landmark study, Lisandro Claudio focuses on the uneasy coexistence and intertwining of two narratives that compete to organize the Filipino people's understanding of their recent history: the dominant "People Power discourse' in which Cory Aquino, the Church, and the middle class are the key actors in a democratic revolution, and a subordinated left narrative where radicals and peasants are important players, the EDSA revolution is a restoration of class power, and Cory Aquino is not so much a democratic heroine as a representative of the landed elite.
