Puerto Rico at the Dawn of the Modern Age: Nineteenth- and Early-Twentieth-Century Perspectives

The newest addition to the Library of Congress (LOC) American Memory Collection "portrays the early history of the commonwealth of Puerto Rico through first-person accounts, political writings, and histories drawn from the Library of Congress's General Collections." Published between 1831 and 1929, the featured materials include 39 political pamphlets, 18 monographs, and 1 journal, the majority of which are in Spanish. The collection covers topics such as land use, relations with Spain, politics, reform efforts, and veterans of the Spanish-American War. The collection is searchable by keyword or browseable by subject, title, or author. The full text of the documents are available in HTML format or as page images. Additional resources at the site include a special presentation of related maps from the LOC's Geography & Map Division.
