Braving the Odds: Far Eastern University’s Journey and Legacies is a commemorative book that covers the history of Far Eastern University spanning over 90 years. Alfredo R. Roces narrates not just the vision of the founder and the journey towards becoming a highly distinguished higher education institution but the stories of the men and women who have been devoted to upholding the mission. In the words of Chair Emeritus, Dr. Lourdes R. Montinola, “He has known personally the cast of characters and their potential contributions for the success of the university.” The book takes readers through the ebbs and flows of the university’s journey and milestones set against the different periods of the Philippines’ history: rebuilding after the war, changes in the political and the educational system.
