This book has been written to provide a useful tool toward a better understanding of the life, times, ideas, and ideals of Jose Rizal. Among the Philippine heroes, many works have been written about him. Some of these praise him while others paint him in a somewhat controversial image.

While not totally ignoring the paeans and the criticisms by various writers, the authors of this book portrayed Rizal as a man in the context of history. Heroes, according to a popular saying, are not born; they are made. Rizal and his contemporaries are products of their time. They are molded by their environment and situations which constitute the call of history. They simply responded to this call at the cost of ignoring their personal welfare and proceeded to put the nation toward its historical path.

To understand Rizal better, it is important to move back from the realm of biography to the ambit of social history. Through this perspective, the students could see historical forces at work.

They could see a wider picture beyond the personal life of Jose Rizal and understand why he chose the path that governed his life. Another important aspect of the book is the inclusion of recent findings and researches such as those on the criteria of heroism and the role of the people before, during, and after Rizal’s time. This widens the knowledge being imparted which would be of great benefit to the students. Another important aspect is the inclusion of exercises based on Rizal’s example. The lives of heroes are merely objects of study. Their aspects such as good traits and virtues are there to be emulated. Though they are exceptional beings, heroes are actually human.

They have the same qualities as any other person.

This book contains a brief story of Rizal’s life and an outline of his works. It puts Rizal in the context of history and what he means to us in the present time. It answers issues regarding his life and his place in the pantheon of heroes. The authors have designed some exercises intended to develop positive values based on Rizal’s experiences. Hopefully, these values would become part of the character of our students whom Rizal called “the fair hope of the motherland.”
