About This Book

The impact of the nationalist, poet and novelist Jose Rizal (1861-1896) was of course a major force in the emergent anti-colonial movement in the Philippines. Many tales surround his memory and the iconic poem written before his 1896 execution in Manila. This book explores Rizal's even now ongoing impact in the nationalism in Southeast Asia particularly in Indonesia and Malaysia. The author finds the ideas of present-day scholars and activists such as Syed Hussein Alatas, Pramoedya Ananta Toer are influenced by Rizal's life and ideas. Bibliography and index.
