The Philippine Press Under Siege, Volumes 1 and 2

National Press Club of the Philippines and the Committee to Protect Writers

This two volume anthology contains newspaper articles by prominent journalists who wrote courageously about the authoritarian regime of President Marcos while he was still in power. It is the first time these articles have been gathered together in a book. As the foreword states, these articles “show the kind of ‘dangerous writing’ that has brought about the forced resignation, firing, blacklisting, arrest or detention of journalists, the padlocking or sequestering of a newspaper’s printing plant and equipment, and the filing of multi-million peso libel suits or subversive charges against writers, editors and publishers.”

The second volume contains more articles to serve as a “graphic documentation of the blood-and-sand state of a profession under siege, underlying the personal struggles and heartbreaks of the men and women of the Philippine press who now work under the shadow of death itself.”

Aptly called “The Philippine Press Under Seige.” A truly valuable anthology.

Days of Disquiet, Nights of Rage: The First Quarter Storm and Other Related Events

Jose Lacaba

A compilation of gripping on-the-spot reports on the First Quarter Storm first published in the Philippine Free Press and the Asia-Philippines Leader, Days of Disquiet, Nights of Rage was a pioneering example of the New Journalism emerging in the country in the 1970s. “Of our journalists, one of the most able in the new style is Jose F. Lacaba. As TV and newsreel do, he puts you right on the scene… [H]e communicates the emotion, even the meaning of what’s happening without having to spell it out.” – Quijano de Manila
