Synopsis: Lopez examines the history of Puerto Rico from the extermination of the native Taino population, the importation of African slaves and Spanish colonial culture, to the 1980s movements for labor, student, and women's rights, and the debates over statehood or independence.

From Library Journal: Lopez argues for Puerto Rican independence, but in his analysis, the people suffer from a feeling of helplessness after years of abuse, plus a disabling fear of the wrath of Uncle Sam at losing the military and industrial haven he provided. The question is whether Puerto Rico could survive independence because of the artifacts of colonialism70 percent of the population on food stamps, displacement of 45 percent into U.S. ghettos, foreign control of business, and environmental pollution. A policy to reverse the damage seems unlikelygiven the FBI's suppression of activists. This well-written investigation should be in all scholarly collections.
