A Critical Study on the Genealogy of Mindanao
|Author: ||Kadil, Ben|
In this work, Dr. Kadil creates a comprehensive sociology study of history, politics, way of life, and speech patterns of the society of Mindanao. It collected from a vast array of sources to understand the culture of Mindanao in the past and in the present.
"The author, a Tausug historian in his own right and a professor of history, had put together a vast [collection] of information derived from various authoritative works on the disciplines of geology, anthropology, linguistics and historical sources. From these he attempts to trace the 'genealogy' of the Mindanaoan culture to determine and understand who their ancestors were, where they came from, how did they reach the island, what social, political, and cultural dynamism took place in the adaptation to the environment of the island and other external factors that contributed to what Mindanao is at present."
