This essay on Puerto Rico analyzes the deepening crisis in American capitalism and how it inevitably affects Puerto Rico. Essentially, Lewis asks and seeks to answer three questions: What is the nature of Puerto Rican society after a decade of dramatic and traumatic change? What should be the strategy of freedom? What can be, ought to be, the nature of the new Puerto Rican society, once it is released from American rule?

Gordon K. Lewis (d. 1991) was a professional historian and political scientist, educated at the University of Wales, Balliol College, Oxford, and the Department of Government at Harvard, from which latter university he received a doctoral degree. He traveled extensively throughout the United States and Caribbean and taught in many American universities.
