Reviews

"The book is extraordinary in that it develops in a well-structured and flowing narrative a rich map across decades, institutions, and states, and suggests a framework for further study. . . . The balance that the book strikes in its coverage of complex and dense materials is impressive. It should be at the top of the reading list of any scholar working on Puerto Rican studies; with other recent contributions, it is the latest contribution of a wave of historically framed and researched studies that will reimagine our understanding of the Puerto Rican experience."
