Puerto Rico: A Political and Cultural History





The peo­ple of Puer­to Rico today are caught in a cen­turies-old dilem­ma of identity.

In this non-par­ti­san text, Arturo Morales Car­rión dis­cuss­es the island’s social, insti­tu­tion­al, and cul­tur­al evo­lu­tion and pro­vides a his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tive on all polit­i­cal positions.

Atten­tion to prob­lems relat­ed to the Puer­to Rican search for iden­ti­ty makes this a book of spe­cial inter­est to Amer­i­cans and Puer­to Ricans alike. “Under­stand­ing the island,” says the author, “involves tran­scend­ing the con­fines of Amer­i­can nation­al­ism in an effort at empa­thy and insight. Only through mutu­al under­stand­ing and respect will the Unit­ed States and Puer­to Rico face with hope and cre­ativ­i­ty the many baf­fling and thorny issues of the present.”
