Dark Days of Authoritarianism

by Melba Padilla Maggay

Philippine history is long and complex, but the stories and reflections in Dark Days of Authoritarianism, from remarkable individuals willing to stake their lives for freedom, shed light on life under the martial law instituted by President Ferdinand Marcos from 1972 to 1981, and up to the 1986 peaceful popular uprising. It provides important lessons for a new generation facing the menace of authoritarianism today, wherever they are, to fight for democracy and resist attempts to diminish people’s freedom.
