Economic History of Puerto Rico: Institutional Change and Capitalist Development / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Princeton University Press
This is a comprehensive and detailed account of the economic history of Puerto Rico from the period of Spanish colonial domination to the present. Interweaving findings of the "new" Puerto Rican 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.
Besides including aggregate data on Puerto Rico's economy, the author offers valuable information on workers' living conditions and women workers, plus new interpretations of development since
Operation Bootstrap. His evaluation of the island's export-oriented economy has implications for many other developing countries.
