This book encourages the students to pursue higher cognitive activities, heighten their awareness on the situations of their Asian neighbors, and make them genuinely involved in their surroundings.


The book—

  • is based on, but not limited to BEC
  • offers a thematic approach to the course rather than the standard chronological approach
  • presents data thoroughly
  • careful sifting was done to ensure quality of information—their relevance and value to our time is a great consideration
  • presents the diversity of Asian cultures, peoples, histories, and traditions, which enchant the world for many centuries
  • connects the distant histories to the experiences of the Filipino students today by grounding these in the Philippine setting and experiences
  • makes the students feel their affinity with their Asian brothers and sisters
  • encourages students to use other sources like the library, almanacs, and other references; and avail of their community resources even from different government agencies like the National Statistics Office, the Department of Foreign Affairs, etc.

With this textbook, history becomes a very interesting part of the students’ lives!
