At first glance, my poetry seems contradictory. I can come across as a romantic, wishing for a better world. Then there’s the poems where I have an unapologetic point of view at the world that I observe and live in. I stopped looking at the world through rose-colored glasses. I won’t sugarcoat the truth even if you don’t want to hear it.

The Story of Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos and his Martial Law Regime. A New Perspective Ferdinand Marcos has been called names: demagogue, ruthless dictator, murderer, thief, among others and, truly so. He must have believed that the spirit of the 1898 Revolution from Spain with victory robbed by the United States being inconclusive, was real. His lust for power appeared to be a manifestation of a desire to set it aright. He believed that it was his destiny to correct it. The time to act came and he grabbed it. His mistake was that he never told anyone about it. Sadly, circumstances beyond his control intervened. At the outset, he was in complete control but in 1975 his health started to fail him. All the people who he depended upon to help, found reasons to desert him and get their own share before he finally lost it. The rest is history. This is by no means an effort to justify or seek forgiveness but to show a man who had an obsession to continue the patriotic fervor that his forbears had and took the leap. Thus he can be said to have been “A Patriot Gone Rogue.”

Winner of the Philippine National Book Award, this pioneering volume reveals how the power of the country's family-based oligarchy both derives from and contributes to a weak Philippine state. From provincial warlords to modern managers, prominent Filipino leaders have fused family, politics, and business to compromise public institutions and amass private wealth—a historic pattern that persists to the present day. Edited by Alfred W. McCoy, An Anarchy of Families explores the pervasive influence of the modern dynasties that have led the Philippines during the past century. Exemplified by the Osmeñas and Lopezes, elite Filipino families have formed a powerful oligarchy—controlling capital, dominating national politics, and often owning the media. Beyond Manila, strong men such as Ramon Durano, Ali Dimaporo, and Justiniano Montano have used “guns, goons, and gold” to accumulate wealth and power in far-flung islands and provinces. In a new preface for this revised edition, the editor shows how this pattern of oligarchic control has continued into the twenty-first century, despite dramatic socio-economic change that has supplanted the classic “three g's” of Philippine politics with the contemporary “four c's”—continuity, Chinese, criminality, and celebrity.

In The Politics of Taste Ana María Reyes examines the works of Colombian artist Beatriz González and Argentine-born art critic, Marta Traba, who championed González's art during Colombia's National Front coalition government (1958–74). During this critical period in Latin American art, artistic practice, art criticism, and institutional objectives came into strenuous yet productive tension. While González’s triumphant debut excited critics who wanted to cast Colombian art as modern, sophisticated, and universal, her turn to urban lowbrow culture proved deeply unsettling. Traba praised González's cursi (tacky) recycling aesthetic as daringly subversive and her strategic localism as resistant to U.S. cultural imperialism. Reyes reads González's and Traba's complex visual and textual production and their intertwined careers against Cold War modernization programs that were deeply embedded in the elite's fear of the masses and designed to avert Cuban-inspired revolution. In so doing, Reyes provides fresh insights into Colombia's social anxieties and frustrations while highlighting how interrogations of taste became vital expressions of the growing discontent with the Colombian state.
