IMELDA: A Story of the Philippines

Beatriz Romualdez-Francia

This book is a biographic review of Imelda Marcos that delves into the Romualdez Family, her origins, rise to power and exile to Hawaii. The author of the book herself is Imelda’s niece and a member of the Romualdez Clan, taking note of the family’s dynamics and even factions in opposition to the first lady (of whom she was a part of, and jailed for, during the Martial Law Years). Researchers can look to this book as a unique position within the discussion of Martial Law, specifically in the personalities intricately tied to the regime and their perspectives within the matter.

Edifice Complex: Power, Myth and Marcos State Architecture

Gerard Lico

Gerard Lico provides an analysis of power and architectural commentary/criticism of the massive infrastructure projects of President Ferdinand E. Marcos, particularly the Cultural Center of the Philippines complex. Lico delves into the idea that architectural projects were used by the Marcos dictatorship in order to legitimize authoritarianism and maintain social control. By looking at Marcosian architecture, the author interrogates Marcos’ idea of the New Society through his ambitious projects that attempt to propel an illusion of “progress” under the context of the dictatorship.
