“This invaluable collection of Jose W. Diokno’s speeches and articles will serve as a monument to his unceasing vigilant pursuit and commitment to securing and protecting the quality of life of the Filipino human person in a just and humane society. His presentations addressed to his three major concerns—respect for human rights, nationalism, and Philippine sovereignty—reflect a contagious passion shared objectively through the use of substantive facts from the causes of our past and present political and economic circumstances.”—Lourdes R. Quisumbing, former secretary of Education, Culture, and Sports
