  • Civil Servants on the Silver Screenby Michelle C. Pautz

    Lexington Books 2017; US$ 95.00

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 150.00

Contributors to this book examine an assortment of visual media—painting,... more...

  • The Filipino Primitiveby Sarita Echavez See

    NYU Press 2017; US$ 30.00
