Experts from Puerto Rico and the mainland examine the existing problems of the troubled commonwealth and alternatives for corrective action. The book is not a plea for this or that solution but, in a final section, an exploration of means to start a political process in which Puerto Ricans can decide their status. The first step is to bring awareness and urgency to Washington. Psychological and identity aspects are well covered.
