COMANAGEMENT IN PRACTICE: The Challenges and Complexities of Implementation in the Northern Sierra Madre Mountain Region, edited by Denyse J. Snelder and Eileen C. Bernardo (c2005, 6 x 9 inches,  320 pages, ISBN BK 971-550-482-5)

This book summarizes the lessons learned from previous studies and project activities in the
northern Sierra Madre Mountain Region in order to draw conclusions on various aspects of
comanagement. One of the main challenges is how to arrive at, and maintain, a fruitful partnership between government institutions and individual, or collective, resource 
users sharing power, responsibilities, and benefits over natural resources. Changes in 
organizational culture and social norms may be essential to create long-term sustainability in 
natural resource management.

MAY TIBOK ANG PUSO NG LUPA by Bienvenido A. Ramos. WIth a critical introduction by Roberto T. Anonuevo. (c2005, 384 pp, 5 x 7 in, ISBN 971-550-483-3)
Hinihimay ng premyadong nobelang ito ang sapin-saping problema ng mga magsasaka, at ang matagal nang usapin hinggil sa repormang agraryo. Sa pamamagitan ng malikhaing rekonstruksiyon ng isang bayan at ng makukulay na tauhan, ipinamalas sa akda ang hanggahang nagbubukod sa mga maylupa't kasama; ang tunggalian ng mga paniniwala't ideolohiya; at ang matitimyas na pangarap at damdamin tungo sa pagkakaisa.
Si Bienvenido A. Ramos, premyadong manunulat, ay isinilang noong Enero 15, 1934, sa Atlag, Malolos, Bulacan. 
PATTERNS OF CONTINUITY AND CHANGE: Imaging the Japanese in Philippine 
Editorial Cartoons, 1930-1941 and 1946-1956,  by Helen Yu-Rivera (c2005, 6 x 9 inches, 292 pages, ISBN BK 971-550-477-9)

In this book, Helen Yu-Rivera challenges the conventional use of written documents in delineating the course of Philippines-Japan relations. This book highlights the perspective of the popular press instead of the commonly solicited viewpoints of policy makers. More important, the author reads the editorial cartoons as symbolic language where images and text reveal more than  what they signify at a cursory glance. 
Helen Yu-Rivera is Assistant Professor in Art Studies, UP Diliman, Quezon City.
Happy bookshopping!
