About the book: 
The study aims to throw new light on Rizal’s changing political consciousness and use of his native language. The most important questions raised are: the shifting nature of Rizal’s intended readership; the geographical location of the birth of a Filipino identity in the modern sense; the odd concealment of the Chinese mestizos combined with a growing hostility to the Chinese as an alien race; the level and ambit of the author’s political sophistication; and the complicated relationship between the colonial-international aspects of Spanish, the ethnic-nationalist claims of Tagalog, and the emergence of a democratic cross-class lingua franca, especially in Manila.
