El propósito de este excelente libro de Héctor Méndez Caratini es documentar la vida cotidiana, las prácticas culturales y las representaciones populares de los puertorriqueños cien años después de la ocupación estadounidense de la Isla. Debido a que Puerto Rico fue una colonia española por cuatro siglos, todavía mantiene un fuerte patrimonio hispánico, conjuntamente con un legado africano e indígena. Desde 1898 la Isla ha recibido una creciente afluencia de ideas, costumbres, símbolos y rituales estadounidenses. La intensa mezcla de identidades culturales es el foco de este retrato de una nación escindida por ideologías políticas.
