The new edition includes a combination of documents and articles that touch upon some of the most important developments since 2006. Among those are the financial crisis that exploded in 2015 and its consequences, Hurricane Maria and its aftermath, the exodus to Florida, and the peaceful revolt of 2019.

An essential sourcebook for a better understanding of the Puerto Ricans. The editors believe that their experience as a people has been obscured by propaganda and that a subtle brand of colonialism still endures. They prove both points. . . . Their book has] a kaleidoscopic, fast-paced rhythm that makes it engrossing reading. It is a welcome addition to both Puerto Rican historicity and to American ethnological literature."- The New York Times
