Reviews of Puerto Rico: The Four-Storeyed Country

“Gonz├ílez is one of the most eloquent and important of Puerto Rico’s contemporary writers. He rightly criticizes the vision of the past by which Spanish governance is gilded, while deep divisions within Puerto Rican society are glossed over. Any serious student of Puerto Rico, whether in literature, history, or the social sciences should be familiar with this essay.”
