Turn of the Century
Edited by Gilda Cordero-Fernando and designed by Nik Ricio, 'Turn of the Century' captures how Filipinos lived during the years between 1890 and 1910. These were significant years when Spanish rule came to an end, the first Philippine republic was inaugurated and obliterated, and the American occupation was established in the country. Essays by Nick Joaquin, Teodoro Agoncillo, Doreen Fernandez, Isagani Medina, Felice Sta. Maria, Sylvia Mendez Ventura, Lorna Kalaw-Tirol, Luning Bonifacio Ira, and Gilda C. Fernando tackle varied topics such as the Philippine Revolution, education, religion, costumes, love, house construction, and furniture, with both scholarship and verve.
