He served as chairman of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (2002–2011) and concurrently as chairman of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (2005–2007). His witty observations and commentaries on Philippine history were compiled in 12 books under his “Looking Back” series (Anvil). Ambeth has won three National Book Awards, for Rizal Without the Overcoat; Makamisa: The Search for Rizal’s Third Novel; and A Calendar of Rizaliana in the Vault of the Philippine National Library. A multi-awarded historian and teacher, Ambeth is known for his sold-out lectures on Philippine history, known as “History Comes Alive.” Teodora Alonso is his first book for young readers.
