Puerto Rico: An Interpretive History from Pre-Columbian Times to 1900
Markus Wiener Publishers, 1998 - 291 ページ
This book is composed from the viewpoint of the colonized, suppressed, and exploited. The author challenges a previously-held notion that the Tainos simply gave up at the first sight of the Spaniards, and shows that they continued to resist the intruders for more than sixty years after the battle of Yaguecas. Also discussed is the fate and contributions of Africans who, as slaves or free persons, became instrumental in Puerto Rico's social and economic development, and shows how this Caribbean Island combines the traditions of the Americas, Africa, and Europe.
