Taming People's Power: The Edsa Revolutions And Their Contradictions
|Author||Lisandro E. Claudio|
In this landmark study, Lisandro Claudio focuses on the uneasy coexistence and intertwining of two narratives that compete to organize the Filipino people's understanding of their recent history: the dominant "People Power discourse" in which Cory Aquino, the Church, and the middle class are the key actors in a democratic revolution, and a subordinated left narrative where radicals and peasants are important players, the EDSA Revolution is a restoration of class power, and Cory Aquino is not so much a democratic heroine as a representative of the landed elite. With his insightful, sensitive handling of the complex interaction of two ideological discourses, Claudio emerges as one of the country's most promising young academics.
