Excerpt from The Philippine Citizen: A Text-Book of Civics, Describing the Nature of Government, the Philippine Government, and the Rights and Duties of Citizens of the Philippine Islands The primary purpose of this book is to help Filipinos to understand and perform the duties of citizenship. After giving an analysis of the nature, forms, methods, and duties of government in general, it traces the development of the present government of the Philippines from the beginning of American occupation to the present. The organization of the various branches of the government of the Philippines is presented and explained, as modified by the legislation extending to January 1, 1912. Special chapters follow on the rights and duties of Philippine citizens. The Philippine government is unique among all governments, past or present. Its serious study is the first duty of Filipinos, while for Americans its interest is second only to that of a study of their own political institutions. In presenting the fourth edition of The Philippine Citizen, the author wishes to express his appreciation of the reception accorded to previous editions, and to renew his thanks to the friends, now too numerous to mention, who have contributed their advice and criticism. It is the author's heartfelt wish that these pages may in some small degree make clear to the Filipino people that the only sure road to the attainment of independent democratic statehood is the patient upbuilding of the whole people into an intelligent, industrious, and patriotic body of citizen-rulers. This was the message of Rizal. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
