Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
To understand the contemporary Muslim movement in the Philippines, one must be acquainted with the political, geographical, and historical situation there. Cesar Adib Majul provides the background needed to comprehend current conditions. Majul is a native of the Philippines who was educated in the Philippines and at Cornell University, and taught at the University of the Philippines for most of his career. Personally acquainted with many of key figures in the movements he discusses, the author is uniquely qualified to provide insight into his topic. He has a clear, pragmatic vision of what must be done to make the Philippines a pluralistic nation where Muslims and Christians share power and economic opportunity and respect each others' history and traditions. Carefully researched and thought out, complete with footnotes and bibliography, this work is equally valuable to scholars and concerned lay readers.
