None of the Above is a state-of-the-art volume about current debates regarding Puerto Rico and Puerto Ricans, both in the United States and on the Island. The title simultaneously refers to the results of a non-binding 1998 plebiscite held to determine the Island's political status, the ambiguities that have historically characterized Puerto Rican political agency, and the complexities of Puerto Rican ethnic, national, and cultural identifications.

About the Author:

Frances Negrón-Muntaner is a writer, scholar, and filmmaker. Her latest book is Boricua Pop: Puerto Ricans and the Latinization of American Culture. She currently teaches at Columbia University and is completing documentaries on Guam and Vieques.

Review:

"Negrón-Muntaner examines Puerto Rico--not as a unique case--but as a key part of the shift toward a 'politics of small problems' that embraces spectacle, ambiguity, and contradiction in order to maneuver around dominant frameworks for political and national identity."--Chon A. Noriega, University of California, Los Angeles, author of Shot in America: Television, the State, and the Rise of Chicano Cinema
 
"The uncertain political status of Puerto Rico--is it a state, a nation, a territory?  What is a commonwealth, anyway?--allows its dwellers not only to morph effortlessly depending on the context, but also to appreciate the world through the prism of ambiguity. The explorations Frances Negrón-Muntaner assembles in this volume do not attempt an exposé of that ambiguity; they simply map it out, innovatively.  ¡Burundanga!"
--Ilan Stavans, author of Spanglish: The Making of a New American Language
 
"Arguably the most brilliant among an impressive cohort of Puerto Rican cultural critics, Negrón-Muntaner has put together a stylish, serious, totally compelling collection."
--Bruce Robbins, Professor of English, Columbia University, author of Feeling Global: Internationalism in Distress (1999)
 
"An insightful and provocative collection bringing together some of the most important and original Puerto Rican studies scholars working on the States and on the Island. This is a must read on Puerto Rican and Latino Studies, and on the working of contemporary nationalism and colonialism more generally."
--Arlene Dávila, Associate Professor of Anthropology and American Studies, New York University
