The novel that sparked the Philippine revolution
In more than a century since its appearance, Josi Rizal's Noli Me Tangere has become widely known as the great novel of the Philippines.  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.  This fine new translation of Noli Me Tangere includes an extensive introduction and notes that draw on a wealth of Rizal scholarship.
'A beautiful new translation . . . Augenbraum's introductory essay is smart and sensitively written, providing great background for Rizal's rich, moving novel.'
- Jessica Hagedorn
