El Filibusterismo (The Reign of Greed)

José RIZAL (1861 - 1896), translated by Charles DERBYSHIRE ( - )

The Philippines, still a Spanish colony, are more or less run by the Catholic friars, and with an iron fist.. However, here and there are pockets of insurrection. In the countryside, a group of outlaws takes things in their own hands – including the money of the rich. And the students of Manila petition the government to be taught in Tagalog instead of Spanish.
Follow Basilio, a medical student and his friends as they navigate the difficult climate in Manila, while his fiance struggles with the law in their hometown. Above all this looms the figure of Simoun, a powerful and extremely rich jeweller, who is more than ready to put his immeasurable wealth to use...
El Filibusterismo is the sequel to Noli me Tangere, and cited among the reasons for the execution of the author, who is now regarded national hero of the Philippines. (Summary by Availle)
