Rafael Palma

Discipline: History



In these four chapters of his Historia de Filipinas, the author describes in more detail than other historians the conditions of life in the Philippines of the 19th century, and relates the causes why Jose Rizal and other leaders of thought and action of his time had to lead the people to take their destiny in their hands.  In publishing these particular chapters at this time, the Journal has in mind to help greater understanding of the significance of the works, specially the historical novels written by Rizal, whose first centenary has just been celebrated by the Filipino Nation of which he is the Father. 


Articles are written in Spanish.
