The Puerto Ricans (Hardcover)

The Puerto Ricans Cover Image
This title is not available for purchase.


This updated and expanded 2013 edition includes new articles on political prisoners and the Puerto Rican diaspora and its consequences. "An essential sourcebook for a better understanding of the Puerto Ricans. The editors believe that their experience as a people has been obscured by propaganda and that a subtle brand of colonialism still endures. They prove both points. . . . Their book has] a kaleidoscopic, fast-paced rhythm that makes it engrossing reading. It is a welcome addition to both Puerto Rican historicity and to American ethnological literature." -- The New York Times "An excellent 'documentary history' of Puerto Rico, its problems, present status, tensions, and prospects." -- The Nation "A pleasure to read. Each page provides a fresh glimpse into the unfolding story of a people. The book captures the human and personal component of sweeping historical changes." -- International Migration Review.
