ambitious, high-wire act ... written in consistently flawless prose ...
Beneath the author's lyrical prose and precocious widsom beats a heart

THE MORO ISLAMIC CHALLENGE
by Soliman Santos, Jr.The singular work in Philippine legal scholarship that confronts
what is emerging to be a universal dilemma, that of acknowledging Islam
within the liberal state… It will be useful for many: for the
traditional lawyer, who wishes to see the overlapping domains of
domestic and international law, of human rights and humanitarian law,
of local and comparative laws;… and for scholars and students, who see
law as a way of reimagining alternative futures for a world that longs
for daring and imagination.

SURGEONS DO NOT CRY
by Ting Tiongco
stories of an institution like the University of the Philippines –
Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH) are timeless. But as it is often
said, nothing ever happened unless it is written down. There are so
many stories to tell of the agonies and triumphs of both doctors and
patients, who have peopled this venerable institution through the ages.
I wrote the stories because I firmly believe that healing is a mutual
process; that the healer is very often himself healed as he goes about
caring for the ailing person. So the stories bite both ways." Thus is
the blurb for this bestselling volume, a collection of stories from
Ting Tiongco who spent ten memorable years of his career as a
doctor and surgeon at the UP-PGH.
