By Carlos L. Quirino (Author) and Maria Eloisa G. Parco de Castro, PhD (Editor)

First published in 1971, this collection of essays charts the changing nature of Manila and its inhabitants. National artists Carlos L. Quirino examines Manila from its early 11th century through the end of the Spanish rule rendering the past in witty and imaginative way. The book addresses such varied themes in religion, theater, war, food, pestilence, immigration, crime and punishment, coinage and art. This new edition contains the original text with enriched visuals - maps, postcards, engravings, sketches and photographs, making it a comprehensive pictorial record of Manila and its denizens through the centuries.

Its keen focus on social and genealogical history is brought about by Augusto Gonzalez III who charts the fascinating and intertwined stories of distinguished Spanish mestizo, indio and Chinese Manileño families.
