Rating : 4.5/5 from voters

A collection of eighteen essays, which originally were delivered as lectures, read as papers, or submitted as journal articles, this book records the intellectual voyage in political science by Dr. Remigio E. Agpalo as student, teacher, researcher, and professor. Although this volume covers practically all the important areas of political science - political dynamics, comparative government and politics, Philippine government and politics, political philosophy, political theory and methodology, and constitutional law - its foci are on Philippine government and politics and modernization and political development. What is unique in this volume is the attempt of Professor Agpalo to analyze Philippine politics and government by means of concepts, typologies, or models based on Filipino culture and history. Among the models which are found in this volume are those on political systems, interest groups, legitimacy, and political leaders; among the concepts elucidated are pandanggo sa ilaw politics and pangulo regime. This book is truly a major contribution to Filipinology, not only in terms of concepts and conceptual frameworks but also in substance - Philippine sub-national politics, national government and politics, political philosophy of Rizal, Jacinto, and Laurel, and political science, especially as it developed in the University of the Philippines.
