This unconventional history book scholarly identifies Jose Rizal’s relations and collaborations with other prominent heroes like Andres Bonifacio, Emilio Aguinaldo, Marcelo Del Pilar, Antonio Luna, Mariano Ponce, Graciano Lopez Jaena, Jose Alejandrino, and Edilberto Evangelista. Pertinently, Professor Jensen DG. Mañebog, the author, also features their respective lives and tackles controversial issues like Luna’s supposed diversion of millions of pesos from the Republic’s treasury to Ysidra Cojuangco (aunt of Corazon 'Cory' Aquino), resulting in the Cojuangco clan becoming very rich.
This book includes new researches. In light of recent findings, this work, for instance, discusses what happened to Rizal’s close friends like Jose Alejandrino after his (Rizal’s) martyrdom. Clarifying some historical controversies and discrepancies, many sections deal with contentious issues like whether or not Emilio Aguinaldo had a hand in the death of Andes Bonifacio and Antonio Luna, and whether or not Bonifacio (not Aguinaldo) should be considered the first Philippine president.
