Marcos Lies is a compilation of essays written by the researchers of the UP Third World Studies Center on various lies that the Marcoses have either concocted or have done nothing to correct, lies that aided them in pursuit of power and plunder. This book shows how the lies were crafted and who enabled the Marcoses to foster their falsity on their targeted audience or those who knew the truth but have chosen to be silent.

Although as a book it is a work of excellent scholarship, it was first a series of online articles, a fine contribution to public history. But the compilation is cohesive. The 31 chapters in the book is perhaps one of the, if not the, most comprehensive reply and exposition of evidence against the major historical distortions, or as the title simply puts, lies about the dictatorship. It is readable and easy to follow.
Even one is familiar with some of the arguments of the book, the research was so deep many of the evidence they found were hitherto unknown and will be fresh even to most historians and teachers.
