The Emigration Dialectic: Puerto Rico and the U.S.A

By Manuel Maldonado-Denis | Go to book overview

TRANSLATOR'S NOTE

Gunnar Myrdal once said that criticism of the theory of underdevelopment leads inevitably to criticism of the system itself, and that there is no room for "diplomacy" in social research. Professor Manuel Maldonado-Denis has dealt a serious blow to those who have attempted to see Puerto Rican emigration within the "neutral" and "diplomatic" arena of bourgeois social science. I am proud to have been asked to translate this analysis.

I want to thank Louise Gross, compañera and secretary of the Oakes College Steno Pool of the University of California at Santa Cruz, who, because she believed in this book, went beyond the call of duty in preparing the final typed draft. I would also like to thank Steve Cochran, compañero, student and compatriot, who helped with the bibliography and tracked down the English sources used in the original Spanish edition. Thanks also to the University of California at Santa Cruz, whose research grant made possible my conferring with Professor Maldonado-Denis in Puerto Rico.
