This title was first published in 1978. This book offers examples of the writings of Renato Constantino, one of the Philippines’ most prolific essayists. Editor Meszaros summarizes their unifying theme: ‘The colonial strangehold on consciousness is the crucial factor through which the whole society is dominated… The subversion of colonial consciousness through the development of a ‘counter-consciousness’ inevitably means also the end of colonial domination at all levels and in all spheres’. This collection includes thirteen essays , the earliest written in 1958 and the latest in 1976.
