A Reader in Philippine Theater History and Criticism Essays in Honor of Nicanor G. Tiongson
Ang mga publikasyon at panunungkulan ni Nicanor G. Tiongson bilang pangkulturang administrador ay may landas na nabuksan tungo sa pananaw na makalipunan at maka-Pilipino. Tayong mga kababayan niya ay dapat lamang kumilala ng utang natin sa kanyang bisyon at sigasig bilang ulirang manggagawang pangkultura.

As cultural historian, theater artist, educator, and cultural leader, Nicanor G. Tiongson has been an inspiration for colleagues and a younger generation of scholars and cultural workers, as the present volume of diverse and excellent essays shows. In his capacious love for Philippine culture, and his passion to see it truly transformative in the life of the nation, Nic is an exemplary intellectual.
