Asian Cooperation: Problems and Challenges in the New Century by the Ateneo Center for Asian Studies looks at various forms and aspects of cooperation among countries in the Asian region. The collection of articles is based on conference papers by Lydia Yu Jose, Rodolfo Severino, Ellen Palanca, Fernando Aldaba with Ma. Josefa Petilla, Pauline Rebucas, and Johanna Zulueta, Telibert Laoc, and Gerard Rixhon.


Comanagement in Practice 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 resourcces. Edited by Denyse Snelder and Eileen Bernardo, the chapters are authored by mostly faculty of Isabela State University and Leiden University.  


Down from the Hill: Ateneo de Manila in the First Ten Years under Martial Law, 1972-1982, edited by Cristina J. Montiel and Susan Evangelista, gathers essays, vignettes, and documents that shed light and reflect on the movements and ideas, conflicts and unities prevailing in Ateneo at the time. The various chapters were written by Stephen Henry Totanes, Maria Elissa Jayme-Lao, Ma. Elizabeth J. Macapagal, Meynardo P. Mendoza, Susan Evangelista, Jose J. Magadia, and Benjamin T. Tolosa Jr.


Literature of Voice: Epics in the Philippines, edited by Nicole Revel, brings together lectures that have the seal of different voices from academe, the highlands, and from the sea. Based on a June 2000 conference, the essays here represent lectures and researches conducted among the Sama and Sama Dilaut in Tawi-tawi, the Tala-andig Bukidnon, the Ifugao, the Itneg, and the Ilocano. It includes excerpts from epics and a VCD of the evening performances during the conference. The contributors are Margarita Cembrano, Lourdes Dulawan, Norma Respicio, Nicole Revel, Gerard Rixhon, Talib Lim Sangogot, Irene Saway-Llesis, Victorino Saway and Fernando Zialcita.


Patterns of Continuity and Change: Imaging the Japanese in Philippine Editorial Cartoons, 1930-1941 and 1946-1956, by Helen Yu-Rivera challenges the conventional use of written documents in delineating the course of Philippines-Japan relations, and proves that pictorial documents are potentially rich in information as well. The book highlights the perspective of the popular press instead of the commonly heard viewpoints of policy makers.   


Philippine Democracy Assessment by Edna Co, Jorge Tigno, Maria Elissa Jayme Lao, and Margarita Sayo critically examines two indicators of democracy: elections and political parties. Dr. Co’s research group conducted interviews and roundtable discussions to draw out insights on the achievements as well as shortcomings of the democracy endeavor. This book thus looks at how universal principles of democracy like participation, accountability and transparency have coalesced into our electoral institutions and are embedded in a complex web of politics and culture which makes reforms truly challenging.


To Love and to Suffer: The Development of the Religious Congregations for Women in the Spanish Philippines, 1565-1898,  by Luciano Santiago narrates the collective story of the courageous beatas who battled the odds to establish  and sustain their own congregations. 


All books are available from the Ateneo Press (02-4265984; 4266001 ext 4612/3; unipress at admu.edu.ph) and at good bookstores nationwide.
