Review quote

"Navarro's book is based on careful research of the reports of the commissioners of education in Puerto Rico, and the author quotes at length from original documents. This is most useful, as it gives today's reader the actual flavor of the debates at the time. The citations offer a window into the world views of the colonizers." - Cesar J. Ayala, The Journal of American Historyshow more
