This book offers a very personal view of the University of the Philippines over a fifty-year period. Professor Evangelista presents vignettes of UP history through the icons of his time: Father John Patrick Delaney, SJ, chaplain of the UP Community, 1950-1956; Salvador P. Lopez, university president during the tumultuous years, 1969-1975; and Armando J. Malay, dean of students, 1970-1977.

In an essay on the UP student Council from the 1950s to the 1980's, Evangelista focuses on its role as a liberal and later radicalized student body. His essay on the Experimental Democratization Sample (XDS: 1977-1981) follows the first grantees in 1977 to their graduation, and has a postscript on the grantees twenty-five years after they left UP. He reflects on his own fraternity, the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) International Service Fraternity, Eta chapter, from 1953 to 1998. The retrospective essays in celebration of the golden anniversary of class 1956 presents how UP Diliman looked in the Fifties, including the main events in the campus, student life, and important campus figures.

UP alumni, young and old, participants and nonparticipants in the events, will find the book interesting, with accompanying photos and postscripts bringing the essays to contemporary times.
