    — Alfred W. McCoy, author of In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of US Global Power

    This book offers timely, incisive, and well-grounded analyses of the rise of Rodrigo Duterte from child of a crisis-prone postcolony wracked by intense intra-elite electoral competition, revolutionary challenges from various sectors of society, and authoritarian rule and top-down developmentalism to long-time mayor of Davao and first Mindanaoan president of the Philippines.
    — Caroline S. Hau, author of Elites and Ilustrados in Philippine Culture

    The irony doesn’t escape us: A Duterte Reader packs a lot of rigorous thinking into its pages to give coherence to a man who eschews rigor and downgrades facts. Still, public intellectuals cannot shirk from their civic duty to civilize the national conversation.
    — Marites D. Vitug, author of Shadow of Doubt: Probing the Supreme Court
