Pride of the Malay Race: A Biography of Jose Rizal (Translated from the Spanish of Rafael Palma)

Title: Pride of the Malay Race: A Biography of Jose Rizal (Translated from the Spanish of Rafael Palma)
Author: Roman Ozaeta
Synopsis: The name of Jose Rizal is enshrined in the hearts of Filipinos to an extent comparable only to those of Washington and Lincoln in America’s own national tradition. Here, patriot, and eventual martyr, Rizal epitomized during his brief life (1861-1896) the finest characteristics of the resolute and valiant Malay race. Rizal’s short but tempestuous life was dedicated to rebellion against the Spanish overlords who held his homeland in thrall. His barbed pen, writing fiery and defiant articles in the cause of freedom, early inspired his fellow Filipinos to make his crusade their own. Published here for the first time in the United States, this biography by Rafael Palma was awarded first prize in a nationwide contest sponsored by the Philippine government in 1936.
