Spans nearly five hundred years in the history of the Puerto Rican people, from their ethnic origins to their present dilemma as memebers of a nation without nationhood - a people whose past and present have often been obscured by propaganda. The editors of this book offer a collection of readings that described the history and social culture of Puerto Rico, with an emphasis on the twentieth century - making available in English a substantial body of knowledge for the benefit both of thousands of Puerto Ricans on the mainland who are cut off from their heritage, and of North American readers interested in understanding this ethnic group. Sources of the texts include Spanish clergy and colonial governors, men of letters, farmers, slum dwellers, politicians, and journalists of varying opinion. the collection allows Puerto Ricans to speck for themselves, where too often in the past they were spoken for only by others.Wagenheim, Olga Jimenez de is the author of 'Puerto Ricans A Documentary History', published 2002 under ISBN 9781558762916 and ISBN 1558762914.
