Description

Reviews

This book relates the history of relations between Puerto Rico and its twentieth century mentor, the United States of America. The author traces the struggle of the people of Puerto Rico to achieve equality from Spanish colonial times to the present, a cycle of high hopes and disillusionment, filled with myths, ambiguities and misunderstandings. The volume ends on an optimistic note with a discussion of Senate bill 712 of the 101st U.S. Congress, which defines the three prevailing options (enhanced Commonwealth, statehood and independence) in considerable detail within a single bill, and provides for a status referendum in Puerto Rico on these three options in 1991.  Included are a collection of presidential proclamations, legislative acts, committee reports, and congressional and U.N. resolutions on Puerto Rico.
