Summary note:
"E. San Juan's new work offers a continuation and elaboration of themes broached in his previous book published by UP Press, From Globalization to National Liberation. For both projects, the organizing motive is the sustained inquiry into the predicament of colonialism/neocolonialism and the quest for radical democratic transformation in the Philippines. The principles of historical materialism (articulated by Gramsci, Amado V. Hernandez, Renato Constantino, and others) inform the commentaries on authors, texts, and aesthetic discourses. Within the framework of globalization defined by the current imperial hegemony of the global North, the author investigates the process of the Filipino diaspora and its translation into fiction, reportage, and film. Original here are the observations on African-American internationalism, the current women's liberation movement in the neocolonial formation, and the vicissitudes of the Moro people's struggle for autonomy and self-determination."--Page 4 of cover.
