President Trujillo, His Work and the Dominican Republic

Excerpt

It has been a source of keen gratification to me that almost immediately after the appearance of the first edition of "President Trujillo: His Work and the Dominican Republic," another edition has been made necessary by the extraordinary interest in our Southern neighboring land and its remarkable leader.

Americans are today more conscious than ever before of the common humanity of all races and peoples, and of the interdependence of nations in their material and spiritual progress. Particularly important are those countries making up the community of American nations, and in this community the first nation historically, the land where today the Dominican Republic stands, is of peculiar interest.

I realize that the great interest shown in this work, and the many flattering comments from varied sources, have been caused by the constantly growing admiration for President Rafael L. Trujillo, and the increasing understanding of his true greatness. To have had a part in bringing to the United States a knowledge of this historic figure has been a great privilege.

Advantage has been taken of the opportunity afforded by a second edition to make a thorough revision of all the material contained in the first, and to bring it up to date in every way. In addition, a considerable quantity of entirely new material has been added, including two new chapters.
