    Beginnings of the Filipino Dominicans: A Critical Inquiry into the Late Emergence of Native Dominicans in the Philippines and Their Attempt at Self-Government

    Rolando De la Rosa

    Winner, National Book Award, History, 1991
    “The ‘movement’ or master plan to establish a Philippine Dominican Province was threshed out in Manila and Quezon City during the late 1960s. Many people, both Filipino and foreign, were very pessimistic about any successful outcome of the movement. But the Filipino Dominicans, with full confidence in Divine Providence, spared no effort nor left any stone unturned to have their own Dominican Province…. This is an important book not only for the history of the Dominican order, but also for the history of the Philippine church as a whole.” ?John N. Schumacher, SJ, Professor of History, Ateneo de Manila University
