Janet C. Atutubo and Bro. Andrew Gonzalez, FSC

This book encourages the students to pursue higher cognitive activities, heighten their awareness on the situations of their Asian neighbors, and make them genuinely involved in their surroundings.


The book—

  • is based on, but not limited to BEC
  • offers a thematic approach to the course rather than the standard chronological approach
  • presents data thoroughly
  • careful sifting was done to ensure quality of information—their relevance and value to our time is a great consideration
  • presents the diversity of Asian cultures, peoples, histories, and traditions, which enchant the world for many centuries
  • connects the distant histories to the experiences of the Filipino students today by grounding these in the Philippine setting and experiences
  • makes the students feel their affinity with their Asian brothers and sisters
  • encourages students to use other sources like the library, almanacs, and other references; and avail of their community resources even from different government agencies like the National Statistics Office, the Department of Foreign Affairs, etc.

With this textbook, history becomes a very interesting part of the students’ lives!

Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
