UP Professor Emeritus Gerardo Sicat’s long-awaited biography of former Prime Minister Caesar Virata is a monumental work of scholarship and meticulous historical research on one hand, and a compellingly written and capacious piece of creative nonfiction on the other.

As the author has envisioned the work, the subject’s life must unfold within the storied matrix of his nation’s economic history, to which he has made numerous significant contributions— as an educator in our country’s national university, as a technocrat and Prime Minister during the Marcos years, and thereafter as a private citizen, a banker, a community leader, and a respected senior statesman.

Prime Minister Virata’s life therefore becomes a singular prism through which to see and appreciate the complexity of Philippine economic history, and in the deft and assiduous hands of Professor Sicat, the narration of this exemplary life becomes an occasion to contemplate just what devoted public service means, as abundantly embodied in the achievements of one of our country’s most eminent public servants— as well as one of our university’s most illustrious and accomplished sons.

Finally, as told from the necessarily subjective perspective of an economist and participant-observer, Cesar Virata: Life and Times (Through Four Decades of Philippine Economic History) proves especially valuable in that it raises the discourse and inaugurates a much-needed intellectual space within which to engage in a serious and in-depth reflection on the convergences between our country’s economic and political histories.
