Excerpts from introductions

1. Elmer A. Ordonez

“Writing an introduction to what is basically history of struggle benefits from hindsight. Past, present and future are intertwined in these essays. No linear time here, shifts in chronology are inevitable, but the inexorable march of history as a Marxist sees it in stages is unmistakable.”

2. Rey Claro C. Casambre

“It is not an exaggeration to say that Prof. Sison’s ideas and works, part of which are contained in this volume, have served to inspire, educate and enlighten tens of thousands of revolutionaries and social activists not only in the Philippines but all over the world.”

Reviews

1. Elmer Ordonez (See full text below)

2. Judge Ad Litem Atty. Romeo Capulong

“I have been tasked to review Prof. Sison’s twelve articles and speeches on justice, socialism and peace for Volume 1 of the series covering the period from 1991-1995. I dare say that the breadth and depth of these three topics encompass the entire gamut of the writer’s life-time revolutionary work and commitment, manifested in his fifty years of selfless service to the national democratic struggle and to the Filipino people.”

3. UP Faculty Regent Judy Taguiwalo
“Tunay na napapanahon ang aklat na ito (For Democracy and Socialism against Imperialist Globalization) sa ngayon na kinakaharap ng mundo ang walang kapantay na kapitalistang krisis pang-ekonomiya at ang patuloy na mga digmang agresyon ng US sa Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine at sa atin dito sa Pilipinas.”

“Humayo’t bumili ng libro at basahin ito. Mas mahalaga, patuloy na kumilos para sa isang mundong malaya sa imperyalismo at kapitalismo. Tulad ni Prop. Sison, isabuhay natin ang turo ni Marx, ‘Philosophers have merely interpreted the World, the point, however, is to change it.’ Unawain natin ang daigdig para baguhin ito.”
