In the first book-length treatment of the Philippine indigenization movement, S. Lily Mendoza presents a theoretically nuanced engagement of the current debates between deconstructive cultural criticism and the project of indigenization as these play out in Filipino and Filipino American intellectuals' struggles to create spaces of empowerment and cultural recognition for their respective communities.

Using insights from various theoretical perspectives, Mendoza performs a remarkably intricate re-reading of the indigenization narrative within the terms of poststructuralist criticism.

An interesting conclusion of the study is that understanding the ethno-centering gesture implicit in the indigenization imperative among a dis-empowered people versus the ethno-centrism of already powerful and dominant subjects requires vastly differing analytic lenses for adequate interpretation, i.e., a dynamic translation is needed.

In the way such analytic move is done, this book e! ffectively highlights the hidden politics of cultural theorizing in the academy and its potential ramifications in the realm of practical cultural politics.
