A passionate love story set against the ugly political backdrop of repression, torture, and murder, "The Noli," as it is called in the Philippines, was the first major artistic manifestation of Asian resistance to European colonialism, and Rizal became a guiding conscience--and martyr--for the revolution that would subsequently rise up in the Spanish province."--Publisher's website
