Rizal – Filipino Nationalist & Patriot

Title: Rizal – Filipino Nationalist & Patriot
Author: Austin Coates
Synopsis: Jose Rizal, Philippine poet and patriot, exact contemporary of Tagore and forerunner of Gandhi, died before a Spanish firing squad, aged 35. His writings inspired the revolution of 1896-98, the earliest national uprising against a colonial power in Asia. But Rizal himself was eclipsed when the main scene of Asia’s struggle for independence shifted to India. In his own country he continues to be revered as a national hero, and has had greater influence on his people than any other man. This work, the first European biography of Rizal to be published since 1907, when Retana’s Vida y Escritos del Dr. Jose Rizal appeared amid the national soul-searching of Spain’s “Generation of 1898,” restores to the place he deserves one of the noblest figures Asia has ever produced.
