|Author||Ferdinand C. Llanes|
|Dimension||8 x 11, 480g|
A sequel to an earlier volume, University of the Philippines: The First 75 Years (1908-1983), this book covers the period from the closing years of Martial Law to the spirited days of People Power under the leadership of UP presidents Edgardo J. Angara, Jose B. Abueva, Emil Q. Javier, and Francisco Nemenzo Jr. For these presidents, it was a momentous period for self-examination, innovation, and renewal in all spheres of academic life and national engagement. Historians from the UP Department of History utilized voluminous records and testimonies to narrate how UP met the demands of its calling as premier academic institution and social critic amid the peopleís clamor for government and social reforms. The book chronicles the events in UPís transformation as it emerged from the dynamism of people power resurgent and renewed, recapturing the soul of its academic leadership and sense of national purpose, and becoming the national university as a fitting tribute to its 100 years of existence.
