The Puerto Rico Problem

Lockett, Edward B., The Puerto Rico Problem, New York: Exposition Press, 1964.

From the author’s Preface:
The Puerto Rico Problem was prepared with the intent of creating an informal collateral reading source dealing frankly and accurately , if discursively, with Puerto Rican migration to the United States mainland, against the background of the island’s genetic, social, economic, and governmental history. On that foundation this study appraises the economic and social impact of island natives’ movement to the mainland, its perils for mainland society and the economy, and explores prospects for reducing the migration volume and easing its mainland impact.
