Review of "War against all Puerto Ricans : revolution and terror in America's colony" on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

As the title would imply, this book displays its outrage like an outlawed Puerto Rican flag during the days of the infamous Gag Law. It includes detailed accounts of the many acts of heroism and defiance on the part of the island's Nationalists, as well as the brutality of the U.S. response. The history of Puerto Rico's colonial exploitation is also explored at length. If you're Puerto Rican, you'll come away from this book both informed and angry.
