Please try again later. This book is a Great start on any research project on pre-hispanic philippine culture. Here you’ll get a broad picture of Visayan, Mindanao, and Some Luzon ways of life. Scott has translated accounts from Chinese and Spanish descriptions of Filipinos from the 16th century to paint a world now only found in the most remote of islands.
No review of mine would do justice to this groundbreaking book. William Henry Scott, taught my Asian Civilizations class decades ago.
In his lifetime as a former Episcopalian missionary turned historian whose immersion in all things Filipino put the native-born to shame, he systematically chipped away at the misguided, knee-jerk notions and outright lies about Philippine history with an unprecedented scholarly approach that was informed by archaeology, linguistics and other disciplines.
I remember how roundly Prof. Scott criticized Zaide for the fake Code of Kalantiao the latter felt he needed to invent. The truth is much more fascinating, as the book shows, based as it is on a lifetime of painstaking research and work.
For a learned culthre, Barangay is an easy, entertaining read for me, anyway and should be required reading for all people of Filipino descent. It both informs and even if Scott didn’t set out to do so empowers the Filipino, especially those among us who are tired of being beaten down by the prejudice and racism of the ignorant.
For someone who originally came to the Philippines sixteenth–century to convert people to his beliefs, Scott ended up offering a labor of love to his adopted people that celebrated who they truly are. The only book I have found that has the pre-colonial history of the Philippines.

Nothing exciting but informative none the less. The information found in this book is priceless for those who want learn about an almost lost history. For anyone wishing to learn about a Filipino history pure of any colonial influence, this rare, out of print book is the most thorough, well researched book you will find. I’ve read the journals of Antonio Pigafetta but this book provides so much more additional information about the the indigenous cultures of the Philippines.
The writer goes very in depth about the descriptions of different aspects of the indigenous societies; from quoting the view points of missionaries, to drawing diagrams of how their “balays” houses were built, even listing indigenous words for household objects. All this information helps the reader piece together how sophisticated and resourceful the people of that era were, before the negative effects of colonial influence. Filipino’s reading this book will also find many parallels of society back then to modern the modern day Filipino society, giving them a greater sense of cultural identity.
Anyone interested in learning about this disappearing cultural history, and especially for Filipinos wishing to learn about their deep roots should read this book. See all 5 reviews.
