From Seller/Antiquarian
Philippine history has never been written in this way. Angela Stuart-Santiagos narrative comes to us in staggeringly effective, clean and lucid prose. Initially a family history of the Herreras of Tayabas Province, the book grips us early on with its account of incarceration, exile, murder, and betrayal. In the end we realize that Stuart-Santiago has unfolded the history of the country from the time of the Revolution of 1896 and the Filipino-American War, down through the American colonial years of Quezons emergence as a politician, the war years under the Japanese and the guerrilla movement, and the postwar period of Magsaysay and Cold War campaign against the Communists. Revolutionary Routes is about the 19th century and the generations that lived through the times when the republic was finding its footing in the path to national stability. Stuart-Santiago has reshaped her grandmothers memoirs, interspersing her narrative with quotes from the individuals who speak, so the reader is engulfed in the words and thoughts of family members and the people who touched their lives, and made to experience the times and the community. Stuart-Santiago has not only told us about a family, she has laid bare a society with its staunch patriots, its crooked politicians, its respectable criminals, its corruptible institutions and fallible dreams." -Bienvenido Lumbera, National Artist for Literature
