The Puerto Rican Nation on the Move: Identities on the Island and in the United States (Summary)

by Jorge Duany

Starting with the Jones Act of 1917, which made Puerto Ricans US citizens, this anthropological and sociological study describes the migration patterns of Puerto Ricans in relation to the United States. The author depicts the Puerto Rican nation as translocal and explains how circular migration creates steady ties between the diaspora and the Island. Duany argues that the relationship with the US did not result in a simple case of assimilation, but instead, solidified a sense of local Puerto Ricans identity. This work studies not only the diaspora, but also how migration has affected those living in Puerto Rico.
