Published by: Princeton University Press. Besides including aggregate data on Puerto Rico's economy, theauthor offers valuable information on workers' living conditionsand women workers, plus new interpretations of development sinceOperation Bootstrap. His evaluation of the island's my has implications for many other developing countries.

Interweaving findings of the 'new' Puerto Rico historiography with those of earlier historical studies, and using the most recent theoretical concepts to interpret them, James Dietz examines the complex manner in which productive and class relations within Puerto Rico have interacted with changes in its place in the world economy.

The author of this historical analysis that goes back to the era of the conquest favors an "internal growth dynamic" for Puerto Rico. He admits that gains have occurred under Operation Bootstrap, but distinguishes growth from development and questions the reliability of trickle-down as a redistribution mechanism.

This is the best known and used book ion the history of Puerto Rico's economy from Spanish colonial times to the 1980s. I am writing an essay on the historiography of "Puerto Rico and the New Deal" and the chapter "The Thirties: Crisis and Transformation" is priceless. Dietz wrtes on Latin American economy. This book , well-written in that it's interesting to read and its illustrated with tables and graphs . This book is a major source for students and historians since its publication in 1986.

Good social/economic histories are rare and we are fortunate to have this study for Puerto Rico. It is too easy to forget how life was prior to the demographic explosion of the early 20th century. Many areas had just a few thousand inhabitants. The book also demonstratedse the importance of the Munoz Marin strategy of economic development. If there is any weakness, I think a more detailed analysis of the dependence of PR on the US is warranted. If we compare Puerto Rico to the Dominican Republic, we see a society in which welfare/food stamps programs raised food costs etc. and displaced local agriculture and production. In the Dominican Republic local production remains and costs remain low because of the much lower per capita income. Sea-Land is not referenced in the book. I would point out that his statistics do document the unbalanced nature of trade and the issue of trading with other Caribbean nations given US trade policies. The challenge of continued development requires greater production of domestic goods in Puerto Rico and the ability to trade freely with surrounding economies. In sum, this work is an excellent start for improved understanding of the Commonwealth and its status in the US and the region.

This book provides a very good analysis of Puerto Rico's economic situation at various historical stages. It's geared towards those doing research on the subject and can be tough reading for just a historical perspective, but if you want the big picture, this book is a big part of it.

Doing grad research on PR, very good book highlighting how much US has impacted any economy on its commonwealth.
