Paul A. Rodell.Greenwood Publishing Group, 2002.

Culture and Customs of the Philippines provides the best general overview to the Asian archipelago and to a people with close ties to the United States and a long history of emigration and contributions to this country. The volume emphasizes how the strong indigenous Philippine culture meshes with constant influences from the West. Rodell, a specialist in Philippine history and society, superbly evokes the breadth of the Philippines for students and the general public. The wide variety of Philippine traditions is seen in each topic covered: the land, people, and history; religion and thought; literature and art; architecture; cuisine and fashion; gender, marriage, and family; festivals, media, film, and leisure activities; music and dance; and social customs and lifestyle.

“Bakwit: The Power of the Displaced” by Jose Jowel Canuday. 2009

I never imagined the story of the evacuee or refugee to be central to life in the 21st century but here we are: Children born in Syria have come of age with childhoods spent in transit, trying to move away from violence only to be refused entry in safe countries or drowned at sea. On our shores, a mix of man-made and natural disasters have displaced communities and added a layer of precarity to the already difficult lives of the poor and oppressed. Jowel Canuday’s book captures the experience of the Bakwit and examines how they are able to define belonging despite being dispossessed. The power of his telling is in his skill as both journalist and anthropologist, one aiming to tell the truth and the other analyzing whose truth is told and why. This book should give us a sense of how to write history, practice solidarity, and work toward a less violent world.

Philippine Culture impacts your life. Bob Martin. 2015

If you live in the Philippines, your life is impacted by Philippine Culture, even if you don’t realize it. The culture of the Philippines is very much misunderstood by foreigners. All of us have heard of many foreigners who live in the Philippines and are very unhappy here. People are unhappy for many reasons, but one of the biggest reasons why many foreigners are unhappy here is because they don’t understand the culture of the country.
