Introduction to philippine history by teodoro agoncillo
Introduction To Filipino History by Teodoro A. AgoncilloTeodoro A. Agoncillo (November 9, 1912 – January 14, 1985) was one of the pre-eminent Filipino historians of the 20th century. He and his contemporary Renato Constantino were among the first Filipino historians who earned renown for promoting a distinctly nationalist point of view of Filipino history (nationalist historiography). He was also an essayist and a poet.
Born in Lemery, Batangas, Agoncillio obtained a bachelors degree in philosophy from the University of the Philippines in 1934 and a masters degree in the arts from the same university the following year. He earned his living as a linguistic assistant at the Institute of National Language and as an instructor at the Far Eastern University and the Manuel L. Quezon University. In 1956, he published his seminal work, Revolt of the Masses: The Story of Bonifacio and the Katipunan, a history of the 1896 Katipunan-led revolt against Spanish rule and its leader, Andres Bonifacio. He garnered acclaim for this book, as well as criticisms from more conservative historians discomforted by the works nationalist, perhaps even Marxist bent.
In 1958, Agoncillo was invited to join the faculty of the Department of History of his alma mater, the University of the Philippines. He remained with the university until his retirement in 1977, chairing the Department of History from 1963 to 1969. Philippine President Diosdado Macapagal named Agoncillo as a member of the National Historical Institute in 1963. He served in this capacity until his death in 1985.
Agoncillos History of the Filipino People, first published in 1960, remains a popular standard textbook in many Filipino universities, as are many of Agoncillos other works. This is despite Agoncillos controversial tone and for his perceived leftist bent. Gregorio Zaide, Teodoro Agoncillo, Reynaldo Ileto and Renato Constantino stand as the most prominent 20th century Filipino historians to emerge during the post-war period. It must be noted however, that Agoncillos works suffer from uneven scholarship throughout, especially with his use (or especially, non-use) of reliable historical sources.

A brief history of the Philippines....
Teodoro A. Agoncillo is considered one of the most important historians of our time. His new brand of historiography did away with conventional ways of writing the history of Philippines—through the eyes of foreigners—and introduced a more Filipino-centric style, seeing the events of the Philippines unfold through the eyes of Filipinos. Today, his works are considered essential to the study of Philippine history, and have also transcended to the realm of classic literature. Marcos for his contributions to Philippine History.
