Doro’s memoirs

Amando Doronila's memoirs span two volumes; the Inquirer and Anvil Publishing launched the first book, "Afro-Asia in Upheaval," on October 23. As with his 2002 bestseller, "The Fall of Joseph Estrada," it fell to me to choose excerpts from the first volume to run on the front page. It was, as before, an eye-opener.

Part 1: Sukarno joked as his regime crumbled

Part 2: A people uncowed by US bombs

Part 3: Johnson bullies Marcos in Manila summit

At the launch party, Vergel Santos and I agreed it would be a nifty idea to publish an oral history of veteran journalists, talking about how journalism was practiced in the old days. Yeah, just might work.
