Selected Bibliography.

From Dr. Thomas G. Mathews’ Preface:
The Institute of Caribbean Studies was established by the University of Puerto Rico in 1958 as a center for study and research. Although administratively a part of the University’s Faculty of the Social Sciences, the Institute is also active in the fields of the humanities and education. The objectives of the Institute of Caribbean Studies are (1) to encourage, support and serve as a center for scholarly research and exchange in the Caribbean; (2) to give disciplinary training to Caribbean specialists; (3) to stimulate interest in the Caribbean among university students, both Puerto Rican and visiting, offering them preliminary training and, when possible supporting them in advanced studies. The work of the Institute is supported in part by a grant from the Ford Foundation for the period 1963 – 1968.
