The new edition includes a combination of documents and articles that touch upon some of the most important developments since 2006.

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. . . .

It is a welcome addition to both Puerto Rican historicity and to American ethnological literature."- The New York Times
