    Adios, Patria Adorada: The Filipino as Ilustrado, the Ilustrado as Filipino

    Alfredo Roces

    Winner, National Book Award, Social Science, 2007
    The book situates the early, key ilustrados in the context of the 19th-century events, ideas, and human conflicts that created the historical colonial experience, and provided the way of life of the national persona now called Filipino. Alfredo Roces, noted writer and scholar on Filipino art and culture, deliberately avoided the class-struggle approach and interpretation that characterized much of postwar writing on 19th-century Philippine history, and produced an impassioned yet unbiased account of the ilustrados’ thoughts and sense of nationhood.
