The History of the Burgis
A chronicle of five hundred years of Philippine history, Mariel N. Francisco and Fe Maria C. Arriola's book traces the evolution of the 'burgis' - the Filipino term for bourgeois that was first used as a pejorative to describe the nouveau riche. First published on the aftermath of the People Power revolution in 1986, the book offers a reading of the privileged class and their profound impact on Philippine society.
