Now available: ‘Oligarchic Politics’

May. 23, 2007

This book is very valuable and its publication is just timelyWell-packaged, with a viewpoint that is just and is suited to the current situation. From Commentary on the book, by Prof. Felipe Miranda, founding president of Pulse Asia

Those interested in social change as well as those (like the middle forces) who may feel threatened or challenged by the new politicscan only be assured that they need not be afraid of change in this book, not by force of arms but through ideas and modes of enabling the impoverished masses, the wretched of the earth, to be heard and represented, and thereby, to regain their humanity. Dr. Elmer A. Ordoez, Manila Times

A timely bookThe questions it raises and the answers it strives to provide deal with issues the relevance of which will last beyond the coming electoral exercise.
Alexander Martin Remollino,

To those who have short memory, this book provides a brief and accessible history of oligarchic politicsthrough the lens of the development of our political party system. – Lou Janssen Dangzalan, Newsbreak
