The Stricken Land
The Stricken Land
By Rexford Guy Tugwell
Doubleday, 1947, 704 pp

The stricken land is Puerto Rico, our stepdaughter in the Caribbean, where Mr. Tugwell recently completed a five-year term as governor. He is by instinct a thinker and planner rather than a diplomat or promoter, and it is small wonder that his efforts, however honest and socially conscious, should have raised up a host of enemies, even among those who agreed with him on fundamentals. To all of these he here pays his respects and provides us with an authoritative analysis of the island's troubles.
