In this first ever book-length study of maternal representations in Cebuano literature, Hope Sabanpan-Yu reveals the confluence of indigenous and foreign cultures and convincingly connects the theory of split-level maternity to the debate on motherhood in the Philippines. Yu traces the history of motherhood and examines the maternal stereotypes including the important roles played by patriarchal and societal structures.
