Puerto Rico

Ángel Collado-Schwarz

Paper $29.95    |    978-0-8156-0963-6    |    2012

"This book should be obligatory reading for those who believe that Puerto Rico’s future should be more prosperous than its past."—Moisés Naím, former editor in chief, Foreign Policy

"Underlines the sad political history of Puerto Rico, presents its recent past inadequate economic results and its current calamitous situation, and argues vigorously and convincingly for resolving its colonial status."—James Wolfensohn, president of the World Bank, 1995–2005

"The author combines a bold vision with a fresh approach, both to the island’s current problems and to its potentially prosperous future."—Thomas L. Hughes, former US assistant secretary of state and former president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

"This is an important work which connects the collapse of the Puerto Rican economy with the island’s unresolved political relationship with the United States."—Peter R. Rosenblatt, former ambassador to the Negotiations on the Future Political Status of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands
