A class analysis of a turning point in the history of the country...Although highly scientific and well researched, this is an essay for laymen and scholar alike. The author brings history alive with his interplay of primary and secondary sources and excellent anecdotal story telling. The English publication of this book fills a gap in the study of the Dominican Republic and makes important historical information accessible to many. -- Dr. Carmen H. Sanjurjo, assistant professor, Metropolitan State College of Denver
Alvarez-Lopez makes a contribution to a growing field of study, and responds to the needs of university students who are searching for answers to their questions about the history of the Spanish Caribbean, and its contribution to the history of humanity. -- Daisy Cocco de Filippis, Ph.D., president, Naugatuck Valley Community College, Connecticut Community College
