More Hispanic Than We Admit: Insights into Philippine Cultural History by Isaac Donoso, ed.

More Hispanic Than We Admit is a compilation of scholarly essays on Philippine culture and history.  The book provokes discussion on the fascinating and sometimes uneasy hybridity that is the Philippines. Presenting significant work by Philippine and international scholars spanning an eclectic range of disciplines, including anthropology, religion, sociology, philology, literary criticism, historiography, film and art studies, political science, and economics, the compilation traces the manifestations and paradoxes of hybridity by exploring the processes of cultural interaction and transformation.
