ABOUT THIS BOOK

A classic biography of the Philippines' National Hero, this book revises the previous edition written for the Jose Rizal Centennial with fresh insights, new data, and new appendices. One of the best-selling books on Rizal, this volume contains new information about the condition in Rizal's times, the attempt on his life in Dapitan, his prophetic views about the Philippines, and other data. in particular, it corrects the impression that Rizal had been a "colonial-made hero" and affirms that he was a hero for all seasons and for all people -- Filipinos, Spaniards, Americans, Germans, Austrians, Malays, Indonesians, etc. His famous diary, essays, letters, and also poems are found either in excerpt or in entirety. His famous novels and incomplete works are also discussed within.
