As a strategic insular possession and guardian of the Panama Canal, a lucrative offshore investment site for U.S. multinational corporations, and a long-standing source of labor power, Puerto Rico has had an important role in American history since 1898.This book provides a new and comprehensive interpretation of how the United States attempted to transform Puerto Rico from ...show more a neglected backwater of the Spanish empire into one of its key props in establishing hegemony in the western hemisphere. The book looks at the formative three-and-one-half decades of U.S. colonial rule, when the colony's key institutions, economic structures, and legal doctrines were transformed.
