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.
