Puerto Rican Diaspora: Historical Perspectives

Puerto Ricans have lived and worked for over a century in cities and towns across the United States -- not just in New York City. Highlighting the distinct and shared aspects of migration and community building in eight Puerto Rican communities, ranging from large urban centers in Boston and Chicago to smaller settlements in Hawaii and Ohio, the essays in The Puerto Rican Diaspora illuminate the historical richness and geographical diversity of the Puerto Rican experience.
