where to buy (good) books around UPM

solidaridad (along faura)-pag-aari ni f. sionil jose. specialized na book shop ito para sa agham panlipunan at literatura, may kamahalan pero nandito ang mga bagong lathalang babasahin. namimigay din sila ng lumang kopya (back-issues) ng Solidarity dati (hindi na 'ata ngayon). kalimitan din itong binibisita ng mga academics, statesmen, at foreign dignitaries.

powerbooks (robplace)-mahal pero sulit. bihirang-bihira ako sumadya dito. si jm eneria (ds major) ang mas pamilyar dito.

booksale (pedro gil cor. leon guinto)-mura pero konting tiyagaan nga lamang sa paghahanap. mas malimit ako rito noong estudyante pa lang ako.

booksale (robplace-adriatico wing)-same as the above. kalakhan ng kolekyon ko ay dito ko nabili (mula sa halagang 5 hanggang 95 piso). sulit.

asian social institute (along leon guinto at the back of Iglesia Filipina Independiente)-alternatibong mga babasahin. sa mga kumukuha ng socio 101, maaaring makabili rito ng librong pinamagatang "Socio:Isang Sulyap" na isnulat ni Rosalie Matilac. 50 piso lang, newsprint. alternatibong diskurso ito sa pag-aaral ng sosyolohiya.

manila studies program (cas)-sumadya lamang sa opisina nila sa unang palapag ng AS. hanapin si ms. georg. may mga occasional papers din sila ritong itinitinda na isinulat nina professors r. simbulan, n. simbulan, villegas, segovia, almeda, del prado-lu, atpb. kung hindi ako nagkakamali 10 piso lang yata kada kopya.

ibon foundation (sta. mesa)-mapanuri at progresibong babasahin. karaniwang sinasadya ito ng ds, as, at ps majors para sa kanilang mga pananaliksik. makakatulong din kung sumadya muna sa www.ibon.org. v.p. nito si doc ed. 'staple' reading ito para sa ds 100, ds 121, ds 122, etc.

you have 4 options:
una, 'wag bumili
ikalawa, bumili pero i-display lang ang mga libro para ipaketeng intelektwal ang sarili.
ikatlo, bumili, magbasa at magpakadalubhasa (jeremy)
ika-apat, sumadya at magbasa ng libre

Quotes from 'Development as freedom' by Amartya Sen

FREEDOM
"Freedoms are not only the primary ends of development, they are also among its principal means." (p.10)


UNFREEDOM
"Development requires major source of unfreedom: poverty as well as tyranny, poor economic opportunities as well as systematic social deprivation, neglect of public facilities as well as intolerance or overactivity of repressive states." (p.3)


GENDER BIAS
"There is plenty of evidence that when women get the opportunities that are typically the preserve of men, they are no less successful in making use of these facilities that men have claimed to be their own over the centuries. The opportunities at the highest political levels happen to have come to women, in many developing countries, only in rather special circumstances-often related to the demise of their more established husband or fathers." (p. 199-200)

HUNGER
"For the elimination of hunger in the modern world, it is crucial to understand the causations of famines in an adequately broad way, and not just in terms of some mechanical balance between food and population." (p. 161)


ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
"In judging economic development, it is not adequate to look only at the growth of GNP or some other indicators of over-all economic expansion. We have to look also at the impact of democracy and political freedoms on the lives and capabilities of the citizens." (p. 150)


ECONOMIC INSECURITY
"Quite often economic insecurity can relate to the lack of democratic rights and liberties." (p.16)


CULTURAL IMPERIALISM
"The contemporary world is dominated by the West, and even though the imperial authority of the erstwhile rulers of the world has declined, the dominance of the West remains as strong as ever-in some ways stronger than before, especially in cultural matters. The sun does not set on the empire of Coca-cola or MTV." (p.240)
